Cheers to Cranberries





It’s nearly impossible to make it through the winter holiday season without cranberries. But why would you want to? The tart yet sweet flavor—and undeniable versatility—make the robust berry a reliable backbone to many holiday dishes, desserts and drinks. 

With a season as busy as the holidays, finding ways to keep stress low is crucial for celebration. In an effort to lower the stakes—without sacrificing an impressive and delicious cocktail menu—try serving these easy-to-make cranberry-powered holiday cocktails at your next party, cocktail hour, or gift exchange.
