This is great for breakfast when you don't have time to prepare a meal, or it is great along side a meal. I've even made it for a pick-me-up any old time.
- 1 pint cranberries
- 2 cups water
- 1⁄4-1⁄3 cup sugar
- 3 cloves
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice or 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Cook cranberries and water until skins pop open, about 5 minutes.
- Strain through cheesecloth. Bring juice to a boil and add sugar and cloves. Cook for 2 minutes; cool.
- Add orange juice and lemon or lime juice. Chill thoroughly in freezer in desired glass.
- Garnish with fresh orange slices, if desired.
Made this to sever alongside breakfast this morning. It is a refreshing drink with just the right amount of tartness. I used Splenda in place of the sugar. After preparing the juice I placed in the refrigerator overnight and then the in the morning instead of allowing it to chill in the freezer, I put the juice in my Vita-Mix along with several ice cubes and mixed for a well chilled slushee.
