  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


Units Scale
  • 3 ounces 100% cranberry juice
  • 1.5 ounces 100% pomegranate juice
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 2 shots (jiggers) vodka (optional) [one shot or one jigger equals 1.5 fluid ounces]
  • Sparkling mineral water to top off each drink


  • Fresh mint sprigs (or rosemary sprigs)
  • whole fresh raw cranberries and/or pomegranate arils (to float in drink)
  • See notes for how to do a maple sugar rim on your glass before pouring - I always do this and highly recommend!


  1. Shake cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, maple, lime juice and vodka (if using) in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.
  2. Pour into two large glasses filled with ice cubes leaving room in the top half of the glass for sparkling mineral water.
  3. Top off with sparkling mineral water and stir gently with a spoon.
  4. Garnish with fresh cranberries, fresh pomegranate seeds and fresh mint (or fresh rosemary sprigs).
  5. Enjoy immediately.


You can make a maple sugar rim on the glass rims by rubbing the rim of the glasses with a lime wedge (just enough to wet the rim) and then dipping the rim of each glass in the maple sugar (I usually place the maple sugar on a small plate).  If you choose to do this step you would do it before step #2 above.  You can use any granulated sugar here but maple sugar is my favorite for both taste and because it is refined sugar-free.
