This was my third recipe trying to make this for Christmas gifts. It is perfect! My gift baskets have this little ruby jewel as the centerpiece!

I used Cranberry Pomegranate juice & it turned out beautifully. I did add some red food coloring to enhance the red jewel tone. I'm giving these as Christmas gifts. So pretty!
