Rum and cranberry...mmmm! I'm updating my review because originally I couldn't taste the ginger "juice" in the drink as the recipe stands. I suggested adding ginger puree,ginger syrup or ginger liquor for a stronger flavor. Now four days later, I took my carafe out of the refrigerator and the cranberry-rum mixture has a delightful ginger flavor - so I now suggest making it in advance and "marinating" for a few days. Also the piece of ginger turned a gorgeous deep red color!


  1. Pour white rum into pitcher.
  2. Add a thin slice of peeled ginger. Using handle of a wooden spoon, crush ginger to release juices.
  3. Stir in 2 cups cold cranberry juice.
  4. Serve in martini glasses.
