A perfect mixed drink for summer evenings or picnics, as the recipe can easily be varied to serve more than one person. The drink originated in the deep south, and got the name Rose Red for the deep red color that the cranberry juice and grenadine give it. It has a light, tangy flavor, and can also be made without alcohol as a soft drink.
