Starvation Alley Cranberry Cocktails
Starvation Alley is a new to the market this year, and we absolutely love their cranberry juice. Not only is it made from local organic cranberries, but the juice isn't sweetened, at all. It's a far cry from the sugary cranberry juice cocktail you'll find on grocery shelves. This allows the true cranberry flavor to shine through, and it's delicious! Since it's supposed to be hot again this weekend, we asked the folks at Starvation Alley for a few of their favorite refreshing cranberry cocktail recipes. Pick up a bottle of their organic cranberry juice on Saturday, along with a bottle of something tasty from House Spirits, New Deal Distillery, or Eastside Distilling.
