Cranberry Simple Syrup
In a small saucepan, combine cranberries, water, sugar, and vanilla extract.
Stir and bring to a boil over medium-high heat (it is easy to boil over at this stage).
Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the cranberries burst (you'll hear them. It's so cool), soften, and wrinkle a bit. Remove from heat cool completely.
Strain the cranberries, pressing down on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Remove the cranberries (which can be used for smoothies, oatmeal, granola toppings etc.)
Pour the syrup into a glass container with a tight-fitting lid. Makes about 2 cups of simple syrup.
Cranberry Orange Mocktail
To an 8-ounce glass, add the quartered tangerines and cranberry simple syrup. Muddle with a muddler or back of a wooden spoon until the tangerine slices are very fragrant and release their liquid. Add ice over the tangerine/simple syrup mixture and top with seltzer.
Stir and garnish with pomegranate & fresh rosemary.
