Last month my friend Jenny came over to shoot her super cool tissue paper fringe and asked me to create a cocktail to go along with it. I’m completely obsessed with anything cranberry this time of year, so a cranberry cocktail seemed like a good idea. Plus, it’s a great color with her fringe.
I’m also a little obsessed with making a punch. It’s usually super simple to create and then your guests can help themselves – which means you aren’t having to play bartender all night. I used Bing Smart Search and Pinterest to brainstorm a punch that was a great color, great tasting, and would be easy to serve a crowd.
1 cup fresh cranberries
3/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups bianco vermouth
2 cups Aperol
2 cups soda water
In a saucepan, combine cranberries, pomegranate juice, and sugar. Simmer over medium heat until berries begin to pop. Let cool.
Pour vermouth, Aperol, and soda water into a punch bowl. Stir in cranberry mixture.
Garnish with sliced oranges and fresh cranberries.
This is my actual search for ‘cranberry cocktail’ – SO MANY PICTURES!
