*100% cranberry juice can be used in this recipe in place of the cranberry juice cocktail if preferred. This will reduce the sweetness of this shandy recipe.
*1/4C of juice is approximately the juice of 1 large orange.
*wheat beer is another good option for making a cranberry shandy if you do not have or cannot find farmhouse ale.
