Cranberry Ginger Soda

A light and refreshing holiday drink!!! With cranberries, ginger and oranges, this drink looks so festive and yet so simple. 

Christmas is almost here. 

The craziness with shopping ( yes…I wait until the last minute), long lines, parking, baking, parties….

I certainly don’t wanna spend time on drinks. 

 Something fast and delicious yet pretty enough to impress your guests is my kinda jam right now.

The cranberry-ginger syrup can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator. Top with ice and seltzer water just before serving. 

I told ya, easy peasy. 

Skill level – Easy
