There aren't enough ways to enjoy cranberries during the holiday season.  Why must these awesome berries be relinquished to jellies, relishes, and cranberry juice cocktail *Shudder*?  Well no more now when you feel parched you can reach for an amazing glass of cranberry soda.  Much like a sip of dandelion wine can transport you to summers past cranberry soda can transport you to winters past.

Step 3: Wash the Fruit

Before we can get to capturing the essence of cranberries we must wash the cranberries and oranges.  So wash the oranges and dump the cranberries into the strainer to give them a good hosing down.

Step 4: Cut the Oranges

Next using the knife and cutting board cut each of the oranges into 8 even pieces.  I do this by cutting the orange in half and then cutting each half into quarters.  Once you have the oranges cut up drop them in the pot and grab your berries.

Step 5: Add the rest of the ingredients.

Now that you have a lovely pot of no doubt perfect orange wedges it is time to add the rest of the ingredients.  Grab your strainer full of berries and dump them in.  Next add the 4 cups (800g) of sugar.(It looks like fresh snow).  Finally add the water.  Now lets head to the stove.

I think you could. It might not be super bubbly because the syrup would dilute the soda water a bit. However it would still be bubbly and I am sure tasty. You can play the syrup to soda water ratio till you get something you like.

Wonderful recipe and ideas. Can't wait for Fall and fresh cranberry season to try this!
What fun! Nice detailed explanation. Your photographer should submit the shots for the Instructables Photo Contest. I am heading to the fridge to throw out our cranberry juice cocktail drink. It just won't taste the same.
