  • Author: Bryton Taylor @ Food in Literature
  • Yield: 1/2 cup 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 cups cranberry juice


  1. In a saucepan over low heat, bring juice to a simmer with the lid off.
  2. Continue simmering until the juice has reduced to 1/2 cup.
  3. Let cool before pouring into a glass jar. I used brand new reed diffuser bottles since they reminded me of ink bottles.
  4. [url href=”http://amzn.to/2k0R5k2″][/url]
  5. Use brand new paint brushes or calligraphy pens (for older kids/adults).
  6. To serve as a drink, you’ll want it looking more like what the Yink drinks. I felt it looked like a vase like this one on Amazon. Pour in the cranberry concentrate and top with 4 cups soda water. For extra flavour, you can also add a squeeze of lime juice.

Other options (not tested) include:

  • sugar syrup with pink food dye
  • cherry or strawberry syrup
  • for adults, a liqueur like Chambord. To turn it into a drink, mix with champagne.
