Cranberry Lemonade – An easy and refreshing holiday drink recipe. Both a cocktail for a few and a large batch non-alcoholic punch recipe are included!
This Cranberry Lemonade recipe is perfect for the entire holiday season from Thanksgiving to New Years. I normally make a big batch of the nonalcoholic version in my drink dispenser when family is over. It is also perfect when you want to make a few cocktails too!
I like tart drinks that aren’t too sweet. If you are like me, then this little recipe is for you! If you like things sweeter, add a little more sprite.
Tips for Making Cranberry Lemonade:
- Freeze your cranberries ahead of time.
- Refrigerate all drinks ahead of time.
- Slice up lemon into wedges and rings. I like to have the rings inside the dispenser for a pretty look.
