  1. Homemade or store bought cranberry juice can be used. Make sure you sweeten cranberry juice, otherwise it won't be pleasant to drink. It'll be too tart.
  2. Don’t use cheap alcohol. It will make the drink taste like methanol and rubbing alcohol.
  3. Always use freshly squeezed lime juice.
  4. Use frozen cranberries. Frozen fruits acts like ice which not only keeps the drink chilled but also makes cranberries float on top. Making it looks pretty!
