    Bring water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat and add cranberries and sugar. Reduce heat and let simmer until berries pop open, about 15 minutes. Pour into a colander set over a freezer-proof bowl. Mash or press out cranberry juices and discard skins, unless you want to use them for something else.
  2. Step 2

    Stir orange juice and lemon juice into the cranberry juice. Freeze until mushy, about 1 hour.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in whipped topping and mix well. Freeze, stirring occasionally, for 24 hours.
