Pink Lemonade

Pink Lemonade
adapted from Simply Recipes (this filled my big pouring pitcher and then a small measuring jug)
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
6 cups sparkling water
2 cups cranberry juice
2 cups lemon juice
1. Make a simple syrup by heating the sugar and regular water in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat.
2. In a large mixing bowl combine sparkling water, cranberry juice, lemon juice and simple syrup together and stir until combined. You can add more sugar if desired.
3. Chill until ready to serve.
