Lava Lamp Cocktail/Mocktail

Make this fun drink with or without alcohol, anything with bubbles will do. Use the cranberry simple syrup for the color and flavor and enjoy the excitement as the cranberries pop up and around.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Ready Time : 5 min


2+ Servings


    Cranberry Simple Syrup

    • 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup water


    • seltzer or sparkling wine
    • dried cranberries


    Make the cranberry simple syrup. In a medium saucepan, bring cranberries, sugar and water to a simmer over medium  heat.  Reduce heat to medium low and cook until cranberries are tender but haven’t burst, about 10 minutes. Let cool, strain cranberries out and store simple syrup until ready to use in the fridge.

    For each drink, place a few dried cranberries in a champagne flute.  Add ½ cup sparkling beverage of choice and then add about 1 tablespoon simple syrup.   After a minute the cranberries will float up and there will be a lava lamp effect.
