Cranberry juice



This is a simple and tasty drink. All it takes is a few hours of advanced planning. If you have freezer safe cups you can fill up the cups with half cranberry juice and half lemonade and freeze. Take out of the freezer before fully frozen and slush up using a spoon. If you leave it in too long, add a little cranberry juice to help it get to your preferred consisentcy. If you do not have freezer safe cup you can fully freeze the cranberry in ice cube tray then put them in the cup you would like to use and add some cranberry juice and gently chop the ice with a spoon to a slushy consistency. 


You can always make just frozen cranberry juice or just frozen lemonade if you prefer.
