The Cranberry Cooler cocktail recipe was created by a bartender in the 1970s. This is one of those drinks that have been around for a long time but it is not always clear who invented it or when this drink was first made. All we know is that this recipe was published in Betty Crocker's Cookbook as "the cranberry cocktail recipe" which might mean that this drink has been around for a while before going mainstream.
It is a perfect drink for when you are looking to wind down after work or when you are in the mood for something sweet. This cocktail is very simple and tastes great, especially when served with ice cubes in a tall serving jug.
