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!
In a shaker, muddle the cranberries, mint, lime juice and brown sugar
Add the vodka or bourbon.
Fill shaker with ice. Shake mixture until thoroughly chilled.
Divide mixture into two cocktail glasses. Fill with ginger ale and enjoy!
