Cranberry Carousel

1 ½ oz Grand Marnier

2.5 oz Cascal Ripe Rouge Natural Soft Drink

Fresh cranberries

Method:  Fill a Highball glass with ice, pour in Grand Marnier, then CASCAL.  Stir gently. Garnish with fresh cranberries.

An option here is to macerate the cranberries in dark rum the night before. In doing this you can muddle the cranberries into the bottom of the glass.
