Holiday Cranberry Fizz

Cranberries are a truly multi-tasking fruit: You can use them for homemade cranberry sauce, cookies, crumble barsfestive and edible wreaths, and of course, gorgeous holiday cocktails for your next party.

This Holiday Cranberry Fizz has unexpected ingredients like black tea, pomegranate molasses (yum! But, if you can’t find it, substitute it for pomegranate juice), honey cranberry rosemary simple syrup, and orange bitters. With incredible flavors like this, who needs alcohol?

Simple syrups are, well, simple to make, but you can always buy them pre-made. Pomegranate molasses is available at specialty food stores, online, or you can make your own — it’s essentially pomegranate juice reduced with sugar and lemon juice.

Variation: Prefer a little kick to your drink? Add ⅔ cup gin to the punch bowl.
