This Cranberry Smash was inspired by a recipe I found on AboutFood.com.
It was quick and simple to make — just the way we like our cocktails.
This one’s a keeper!

Confession: I don't own a cocktail shaker. Until Santa brings me one, I muddle the ingredients in a wide bottom bowl and then scoop it all into a plastic jar with a lid. Fill with ice and shake, shake, shake. It works just fine for me!
