My mother in law gave me this recipe several years ago after serving at our Thanksgiving dinner party, and I've been making this traditionally since. With a festive presentation of red cranberry slush afloat of sparkling ginger ale, this is an ideal drink for any festive holiday occasion.

  • Combine the cranberries and 2 cups water in a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring to a boil and cook until cranberries burst. Remove from heat and stir in sugar until dissolved; mix the softened gelatin into the hot cranberry mixture. Pour the cranberries into a shallow freezer-proof container and chill until cold.

  • When cooled, mix in 2 cups ginger ale and place the mixture into the freezer. Freeze until slushy, about 4 hours. Stir twice during the freezing process to break up the ice crystals.

  • To serve, fill clear glasses 3/4 full with chilled ginger ale, and spoon some of the cranberry ice overtop. Serve immediately.

What a nice change of pace! I had cranberries in the freezer and was wondering what to do with them. I will be offering this at the Thanksgiving appetizer table as we have only 2 out of the 14 that like the relish but all will eat cranberries in other things. Thanks! Read More
