The perfect garnish for a Christmas Cosmopolitan or Cranberry Martini.
- Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
- When syrup is at a rolling boil, add cranberries and immediately remove from heat and cover.
- Allow to steep for 15 minutes and then strain cranberries from syrup and spread in a single layer to cool, discarding any popped berries.
- Allow to dry for 30-60 minutes.
This is similar to one I used from Cooking Light. Don't boil the syrup and the berries won't pop. Allow them to marinate in the fridge overnight. Drain and roll in superfine sugar.
