Standard Garnish:  Garnish with pomegranate seeds and candied cranberries*.

Drinkware:  Champagne Flute

Candied Cranberries*:

1.5 cups Water

2.5 cups Granulated Sugar

1 (12 oz) bag of Cranberries

1 Cinnamon Stick (optional)

Candied Cranberries Preparation:

In a medium saucepan, combine the water with 1.5 cups of granulated sugar. Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for a minute or two, or until the sugar is dissolved.

Rinse the cranberries thoroughly and pick them over. Discard any malformed of soft berries. Put the cranberries in a large bowl and add the syrup. Place a plate over the cranberries to keep them submerged. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or overnight.

Place a cooling rack in a large, rimmed baking pan. With a slotted spoon, remove the cranberries to the cooling rack. They should be spread out in a single layer. Let them dry for about one hour. They will be sticky, but not wet.

Put the remaining one cup of sugar in a large bowl. Add the cranberries, a few at a time, and toss gently to coat thoroughly.

Use the sugared cranberries immediately or store on a rack in a cool, dry place. Or, place a small bowl of rice in a larger covered container and add the sugared cranberries. The rice will absorb much of the moisture. If the cranberries weep, repeat the sugaring.
