This recipe calls for simple syrup. To make it, simmer 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1 cup of water until the sugar is dissolved, then cool. Recipe is from Peterson's Holiday Helper by Valerie Peterson.

wow this is great! Since I didn't have simple syrup, I used corn syrup. It did the job LOL I used sparkling wine. It was so yummy. I used all my fresh cranberries in the day and forgot to keep some for this drink :( Thanks Lainey :) Made for Photo tag
