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.
