"I make these all the time. The trick is to using pure cranberry juice. You can find it at the health food stores."

"I use a little less cranberry juice or substitute cranberry pomagranate or cran raspberry and use contreau instead of triple sec. 100% juices are much better than the juice cocktail blends for this. Garnish with a lime, lemon twist or add a touch of fresh lime juice"
