Prep time: 15 minutes (+ chill time)
Cook time: n/a
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

¼ c. fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped or minced
1 c. unsweetened cranberry juice
1 c. fresh orange juice (approximately 3 large oranges)
1 large lime, sliced
1 large orange, sliced
½ c. fresh or frozen cranberries
2 c. club soda, chilled*
Optional: Additional orange slices and/or fresh cranberries, for garnish

*Add an additional 1 c. chilled club soda for non-alcoholic version

Adults-Only Version (Optional):
½ c. chilled vodka
½ c. ginger beer

Directions:

  1. Add the ginger, unsweetened cranberry juice, orange juice, lime slices, orange slices, and cranberries to a large non-reactive bowl and gently press with a potato masher or wooden spoon to release the juices. Stir to combine and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few hours. 
  2. Remove from refrigerator and strain to remove solids, squeezing out excess liquid from the sliced fruit in the process. Discard solids and transfer remaining liquid to a large pitcher. 
  3. Add chilled club soda (and vodka, if using) and stir to combine. 
  4. Serve immediately over ice and garnish with extra cranberries or orange slices, if desired. Enjoy!
