What a fun and different cocktail recipe! Vodka Cranberry gets all the fame but what about a Sparkling Cranberry Apple Moon Cocktail? Using frozen cranberries and reducing them down to a cranberry simple syrup starts the base of this delicious concoction. The other ingredients mix in effortlessly and the final product is tasty! Now you don’t have to sprinkle the rim in sugar but it does add a nice touch, especially for the holidays (make sure to do this prior to adding liquids to the glass)!
