Recipe Notes

  • For the honey simple syrup, combine equal parts honey and water (say ½ cup honey and ½ cup water) in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the honey dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool completely before using. Store in an airtight container or jar in the fridge.
  • Freeze cranberries and mint in ice cubes to give your drinks a festive look over the Christmas season. So pretty!
