For Cranberry Christmas Tree Base

How To Make It
Make the Christmas tree base. Pour water into the cup until you have a base tall enough to hold up the rosemary leaf. Drop 4-5 frozen or fresh cranberries into the water. Set a rosemary leaf stem down into the water. Lightly tie a piece of string around the rosemary leaf, taping the string to the side of the cup to make the leaf stand upright. Place the cups in the freezer until the water turns to ice.
Make the cannabis-infused cranberry simple syrup. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring cranberries, sugar, and water to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook the cranberries until they are tender but intact — this shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes. Stir in tincture and cranberry juice and let the mix cool. Use a fine mesh strainer to remove cranberries, pouring the liquid into an airtight, and dark jar or container. Store in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
Bring everything together. Grab your cups out of the freezer and pour in 1.5oz of the infused cranberry simple syrup — this may be different depending on how much THC tincture you put into the syrup. Want to add a little alcohol to the mix? We recommend using Gin! Fill the rest of the cup with club soda and your drink is done.
