Heat up over high heat until it just starts to simmer. Do not let this reduce or boil off, just warm it enough to start to dissolve the sugar and plump the cranberries.

Once the juice has warmed up, remove it from the heat and chill in an ice bath. Stir this a few times to dissolve the sugar.

Once the juice has chilled, mix it with the rest of the ingredients. Stir this together very well to combine it all together.
