Cranberries are quite pretty but, unless you pickle them, they aren’t the tastiest garnish. Rather than let them skate by on looks alone, I make them pull their weight by performing double duty as a beverage chiller.

You can either skewer a few on some toothpicks before freezing, or simply pop a whole bunch in the freezer (wash and dry them first, if you like). Let them chill for a few hours, then add them to every cold beverage you enjoy this holiday season. They perk up mimosas, bring cheer to a G&T, and – since they won’t add any flavour to your beverage as they melt – they even work in straight spirits you wish to chill, but not dilute.
