This cranberry ginger crush is easy to make and the perfect drink for the approaching fall weather.


  • 2 ounces 100 percent cranberry juice
  • 2 ounces spiced rum
  • 4 ounces spicy ginger beer (Blenheim's or Reed's)
  • Candied ginger pieces, for garnish

This drink takes a combination of spiced rum and spicy ginger beer and mixes them with cranberry juice to create the ultimate solution to the cold-weather blues. By adding candied ginger or other candied pieces to garnish the glass, the drink really gets an extra oomph. Making the drink takes only three easy steps, and you'll be ready to enjoy it in no time. Fill your glass with ice, and combine the cranberry juice and rum. Top that off with ginger beer, then garnish your glass, and you'll be headed off to a crisp, fall wonderland after just one sip.
