Prep time: 15 minutes (+ chill time)
Cook time: n/a
¼ c. fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped or minced
1 c. unsweetened cranberry juice
1 c. fresh orange juice (approximately 3 large oranges)
1 large lime, sliced
1 large orange, sliced
½ c. fresh or frozen cranberries
2 c. club soda, chilled*
Optional: 2-3 T. honey, preferably local
Optional: Additional orange slices and/or fresh cranberries, for garnish
*Add an additional 1 c. chilled club soda for non-alcoholic version
Adults-Only Version (Optional):
½ c. chilled vodka
½ c. ginger beer
- Add the ginger, unsweetened cranberry juice, orange juice, lime slices, orange slices, and cranberries to a large non-reactive bowl and gently press with a potato masher or wooden spoon to release the juices. Stir to combine and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few hours.
- Remove from refrigerator and strain to remove solids, squeezing out excess liquid from the sliced fruit in the process. Discard solids and transfer remaining liquid to a large pitcher.
- Add chilled club soda (and vodka, if using) and stir to combine. Taste and stir in the honey to sweeten, if desired.
- Serve immediately over ice and garnish with extra cranberries or orange slices, if desired. Enjoy!
