What is cranberry juice, cranberry ka ras?

Cranberry juice is a dark red fruit juice made from cranberries and sugar. This juice is liquid crushed from cranberries, which are acidic berries that grow on small shrubs or vines. Pure cranberry juice is very tart and so is often diluted with other types of juice, such as orange or apple. Cranberry juice might also be diluted with water and sweeteners in order to soften its acidity. In this case, it might be called cranberry juice cocktail, or a juice drink or nectar. While some dilution can make it easier to drink more cranberry juice for those who don't like tart flavours, too much dilution would defeat the purpose by negating health benefits and may add a lot of sugar to the diet.
