  • 1
    The day before serving the drink, mix together the water and sugar in a small pot to marinate the cranberries.
  • 2
    Cook at medium heat stirring until the water completely evaporates. It should be warm; do not bring to a boil. Add the cranberries and let cool. Refrigerate over night.
  • 3
    Take out 12 cranberries and let sit for a bit, and then roll in the sugar until completely covered; allow to dry on a dish. Use 3 cranberries on each skewer (cut skewer to suit glass).
  • 4
    Peel the prickly pears and, using a melon scoop, make 12 balls. Place 3 in each cup and about 6 marinated cranberries.
  • 5
    Pour the Muscat on the fruits. Serve immediately. Cheers!
