Expert Tips

Float a few cranberry-filled ice cubes in each glass of this fruity slush. To make cubes, place a couple of cranberries in each compartment of an ice-cube tray. Fill with a mixture of equal parts cranberry juice cocktail and water. Once frozen, use these "cranberry cubes" to freshen up this slush or other fruit-flavored drinks.

The slush freezes most quickly in 1-pint containers and can be used directly from the freezer. You can freeze it in one large container for punch, but it will take 1 or 2 days to freeze until slushy.
