Cranberry Prosecco Cocktail
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup cranberries
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- Chilled prosecco
- Combine sugar, water and cranberries in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to a simmer and continue to cook until the cranberries pop and soften and the mixture becomes thickens to a syrupy consistency (about 10 minutes)
- Strain the cranberry syrup through a mesh sieve into a bowl. Use a spoon to press down on the cranberry mixture to release all the juice. Set syrup aside to cool to room temperature

The syrup can be made up to three days in advance and stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator
