This newest holiday soda flavor is fresh and bright. I used fresh cranberries and mint leaves, to flavor the sweet syrup base. Since we have a Soda Stream, the reference to one is just for convenience. If you don't have one, try adding this base to a purchased soda water. Delish!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Steep : 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups fresh, whole cranberries
  • 6 Teabags of peppermint tea

Preparation:

Heat first three ingredients over medium heat, until sugar dissolves and berries have become soft. (about 5 minutes) Remove from heat Add teabags, cover. Steep until syrup becomes a rich, red color and tastes minty enough (about 15 minutes) Strain and press out as much of the sugar syrup as possible. Use 1/4 cup per bottle of soda water made in a Soda Stream, or to taste.
