Please note that nutrition facts are subject to change based on your choice of ingredients. Please note that while the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of sugar, that's more than you will actually consume. More is needed to have room for the cranberries to pick up the sugar. Unless you really coat them, you're really only using about 1 tsp of sugar per drink or less.
