Cranberry & Orange Cocktail

  • Author: Chris @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cocktails


The perfect new years eve cocktail! Fresh squeezed orange juice paired with smooth dark rum, cranberry reduction, and a splash of ginger beer make for the perfect celebratory libation!


Cranberry reduction

  • 1 cup cranberry
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

Cranberry orange cocktail

  • 2 ounces cranberry reduction
  • 8 ounces ginger beer
  • 2 ounces rum
  • 1 fresh orange


  1. For the reduction: In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the cranberry juice and sugar. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 1/3 of its size. You will know when it is done when it turns into the consistency of a thick syrup. If the reduction is too thick, add in 1/4 cup of water to loosen it a bit. Remove from heat and cool completely. Pour into a jar or airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
  2. Pour the ingredients into a shaker with ice cubes and shake well.
  3. Strain the cocktail into two glasses with ice and wedge of fresh orange into each glass.
  4. Garnish with a slice of orange and enjoy!
