It was such a great treat to indulge in an afternoon non-alcoholic cocktail. These awesome berries are just in time for the holidays. I didn’t have to venture far as I had the red, tart and healthy  berries (cranberries) chilling in the refrigerator from the previous day. These were simmered on low heat for less than 25 minutes until they burst with glee.

In   a standing blender, a splash of water was added along with some of the simmered cranberries. To that I further added a little simple syrup and blended all the ingredients to a refreshing finish. Drink was garnished with a sprig of mint and a slice of grapefruit.
