What is cranberry simple syrup?
Cranberry simple syrup is a combination of sugar, water, and fresh cranberries. The cranberries break apart, and then you strain the mixture to form a cranberry-flavored simple syrup that you can use in cocktails and mocktails.
Can you use cranberry juice?
You can use cranberry juice in this mocktail! However, cranberry simple syrup is usually a little more concentrated than regular cranberry juice. If you use cranberry juice, double the amount and use 2 oz instead of 1 oz.
