There is something about a festive punch or a fancy glass filled with a colorful, fruity drink at a Thanksgiving get-together that sets the tone for the entire gathering. This easy-to-prepare non-alcoholic sparkling drink is a fun new way to feature cranberries at the holiday table, and one that everybody - young and old - can enjoy.
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup chopped cranberries
- 2 fresh limes, sliced
- 3 Tbsp. cream of coconut
- 1 liter sparkling water
- Add sugar and water to a small saucepan; cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to thicken slightly.
- Remove pan from heat and stir in chopped cranberries and cream of coconut. Allow to cool.
- Pour cranberry sugar mixture into a large pitcher. Add sliced limes. Pour chilled sparkling water over all; stir and serve over ice.
