If you’re participating in Dry January, the Cranberry Bramble Mocktail will definitely make the cut! Crafted with simplicity in mind, this mocktail comes together in just 5 minutes and is bursting with flavor and freshness!

Cranberry sauce, hydrating coconut water, and fresh lemon juice (or bottled in a pinch) is the foundation for the drink.

Ingredients for Cranberry Bramble Mocktail

  • Cranberry Sauce: Cranberry sauce adds a sweet and tangy kick to this mocktail.
  • Coconut Water: Infuse tropical vibes and hydration with coconut water. I like Vita Coco, but any coconut water will do. 
  • Sparkling Water: Sparkling water creates a fizzy and delightful experience. I used LaCroix.
  • Lemon: Fresh squeezed lemon juice adds a citrusy twist. You can use bottled here as well.
  • Simple Syrup: Enhance sweetness with simple syrup, balancing the tartness of the cranberry sauce and lemon juice. Homemade or store bought works here.
  • Cranberries and Rosemary Spring: Cranberries and a sprig of fresh rosemary bring a touch of herbal aromatics as a garnish.
