  • 2 Cups Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar

  • 4 1/2 Cups Lemon Lime Seltzer


1. In small to medium sized saucepan warm water and sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently.
2. Add frozen cranberries and stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to break down cranberries.
3. Pour mixture into a blender with a fitted top vent. Add lemon juice. Blend together for 1 minute or until all cranberries have broken down.
4. Slowly strain mixture through a colander, lined with a double layer of cheesecloth over a pot.
5. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature, roughly 30 minutes before refrigerating to chill completely.
6. Before serving, add lemon lime seltzer to cranberry lemon simple syrup. Gently stir together and enjoy.
