Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 c. fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 T clove buds
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 c. unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 2 medium organic oranges, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 3 c. sparkling water
  • Optional: 1/2 c. vodka

Optional Garnish:

  • Additional cinnamon sticks
  • 6 long rosemary sprigs, lower leaves removed and threaded with fresh cranberries

Instructions

  • Add cranberries, honey, water, cloves, and cinnamon sticks to a small saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until the honey is melted and the spices are intensely fragrant.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a large glass or another non-reactive bowl.
  • Add cranberry juice, orange wedges, and vodka, if using.
  • Refrigerate for several hours to overnight.
  • Once thoroughly chilled, remove from the refrigerator and firmly squeeze each orange wedge into the bowl to capture the juice before discarding.
  • Strain the mixture with a fine-mesh strainer and discard the solids.
  • To serve, fill serving glasses with ice and add enough of the seasoned cranberry juice mixture to fill each glass about 1/3 full.
  • Top off each glass with sparkling water and stir to combine.
