Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 family-sized tea bags
  • 2 1/2 cups no-sugar-added cranberry juice
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier (orange-flavored liqueur)
  • 4 cups ginger ale, chilled
  • Orange rind strips (optional)

Preparation

  1. Combine 4 cups water and sugar in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Pour over tea bags. Cover and let stand 5 minutes; discard tea bags. Cool. Stir in juice, vodka, and Grand Marnier; chill.
  2. Gently stir in ginger ale. Serve over ice; garnish with rind, if desired.
Note:

This is a fine make-ahead recipe for an open house. Combine the ingredients through step one and chill; stir in the ginger ale just before serving. Serve in goblets, highball glasses, or any pretty clear glasses to show off the concoction's yuletide-red hue.
