Cocktails with Hank & Hunt {and Bing Smart Search}

Last month my friend Jenny came over to shoot her super cool tissue paper fringe and asked me to create a cocktail to go along with it.  I'm completely obsessed with anything cranberry this time of year, so a cranberry cocktail seemed like a good idea.  Plus, it's a great color with her fringe.  

I'm also a little obsessed with making a punch.  It's usually super simple to create and then your guests can help themselves - which means you aren't having to play bartender all night.  I used Bing Smart Search  and Pinterest to brainstorm a punch that was a great color, great tasting, and would be easy to serve a crowd.  

1 cup fresh cranberries
3/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups bianco vermouth
2 cups Aperol
2 cups soda water

In a saucepan, combine cranberries, pomegranate juice, and sugar.  Simmer over medium heat until berries begin to pop.  Let cool.

Pour vermouth, Aperol, and soda water into a punch bowl.  Stir in cranberry mixture.  

Garnish with sliced oranges and fresh cranberries.

This is my actual search for 'cranberry cocktail' - SO MANY PICTURES!
