This is also VERY good for your digestive system

Great cocktail. Cranberry juice can be very sour when it's unsweetened, so why not mix 3 oz of cranberry juice with 3oz of naturally sweet pineapple juice? It tastes superb (with our without the Gin), is also very low in calories and contains less artificial sugars thanks to the pineapples.
