I used frozen cranberries, freshly squeezed lemon and orange juice and 1/4 of the sugar using regular white. I made this to prevent UTI and for my health, one reason why I redused the amount of sugar, plus I don't like drinks very sweet in general. I found the drink a bit weak so I would reduce the water somewhat next time. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.
We have colds here right now, and this really hit the spot. Lots of Vitamin C. I replaced half the sugar with Splenda. I think I would cut the sugar/sweetener in half next time, as we like our teas and such a little less sweet, but that is a personal taste. Will be trying this iced during warmer weather (I always have cranberries in the freezer for year round use) :)
I used frozen berries, so I boiled the berries in the water and then took the pan off the heat and added the rest of the indredients. I hear some of the berries popping right now. The vote is in, hot is delicious and cold is okay. I'm not much of a sugar person so I'll cut the sugar back to 1/4 cup to start. Thanks for posting. Made for Zaar World Tour 2006
