The addition of cranberries to this fruity cocktail makes it perfect for the winter months. If you want something a little more summery try using one of the other purées in the Clearspring Fruit Purée Range, such as apple and strawberry or blueberry.
- 4 shots Sake
- 1 tub Clearspring Apple and Cranberry Fruit Purée
- 500ml apple juice
- Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until the cranberries have broken down.
- Strain the cocktail through a sieve into 4 classes.
