  • CourseBeverage, Drink
  • CuisineHoliday
  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen (plus extra for garnish)
  • 2 leafy rosemary sprigs, 7–8" each (plus extra for garnish)
  • 1 finger ginger, grated
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bottle sparkling natural mineral water
  • a splash of orange juice, for serving
  1. Remove rind from orange using a vegetable peeler and save. Juice the orange.
  2. Combine orange rind, orange juice, cranberries, ginger, rosemary, sugar and water in a small saucepan to make a syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir frequently to dissolve sugar.
  3. Lower heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the cranberries pop and release their juices. Take off heat and let cool to room temperature; leave rosemary sprigs to add more flavor.
  4. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer. Press down and scrape with a spatula to extract as much of the juice as possible. Discard solids.
  5. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  6. To serve: Combine 3 parts syrup with 1 part orange juice. Add sparkling water until you get the dilution you prefer. Add a few frozen cranberries, rosemary sprigs and orange slices to garnish.
