            Instant Pot Cranberry Juice

            Decorate the refreshment tray during your next family gathering with this deliciously refreshing cranberry juice. The red-color will stimulate the optical receptors as the pleasing scent makes everyones mouth water with anticipation. Garnish with a lemon or orange slice to enhance the drink’s presentation to a sophisticated looking beverage. The kids will not hesitate to drain the glass once they get their first taste as the juice is laced with natural sweetness. This recipe uses the perfect balance of honey (buy local if you can find it) and fresh squeezed lemon juice. I had to make this recipe twice as my family drank it all shortly after the first batch was made. The second batch didn’t last much longer but, I ran out of cranberries so that ended the cycle. 

            Once the kids have had there serving you may find it rewarding and interesting to include a jigger of your favorite libation in your cup when no-one is looking.  If you like the occasional cosmopolitan you will appreciate the flavor profile this juice serves as a fresh made mixer for a fabulous cranberry cocktail.
