Make this fun drink with or without alcohol, anything with bubbles will do. Use the cranberry simple syrup for the color and flavor and enjoy the excitement as the cranberries pop up and around. Makes 2+ servings.
Cranberry Simple Syrup
2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Syfo Kosher for Passover Original Seltzer
Make the cranberry simple syrup. In a medium saucepan, bring cranberries, sugar and water to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium low and cook until cranberries are tender but haven’t burst, about 10 minutes. Let cool, strain cranberries out and store simple syrup until ready to use in the fridge.
For each drink, place a few dried cranberries in a champagne flute. Add ½ cup sparkling beverage of choice and then add about 1 tablespoon simple syrup. After a minute the cranberries will float up and there will be a lava lamp effect.

Passover occasionally coincides with April, the month when Parisians experience more showers than during the whole rest of the year combined, which is reason enough to celebrate with this languid cocktail comprised entirely of ingredients from France.
A musky accompaniment for firing up the vaporizer, cranking up “La Vie En Rose” and inducing a lazy nostalgie de la boue for “The Sparrow” and amnesia concerning her activities during the war. Smugly satisfying with a toasted matzoh and grilled gruyere.
1 1/2 oz Cognac
1 oz green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
4 oz Syfo Kosher for Passover Original Seltzer
To a chilled rocks glass (preferably a Bonne Maman jam jar), add Cognac, Chartreuse, and Grand Marnier, then swirl with minimal effort. Using fingers drop two ice cubes into the mixture, then fill to rim with Perrier. No garnish.
