For the Cranberry Mint Simple Syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
For the sparkling water:

  3. Once the simple syrup has cooled, add about 4 tablespoons of syrup and the cranberries into each of the glass. Garnish with fresh mint leaves. Add ice cubes or fresh ice.
