Cranberry and gin pair like red wine and cheese - at least to me. Something about the tangy tartness of bright red cranberries and the frosty spruce aroma of gin seem to scream "It's Christmas!"
So here is my take on a cranberry-gin fusion with this magical Yuletide Cocktail:
You Will Need:
- Cranberry Juice
- Gin (I recommend Bombay Sapphire)
- St. Germain (or another elder-flower liquor)
- Ice Cubes
- Garnish of your choice
You Will Do:
Fill a tumbler glass with ice. Pour in equal parts gin and cranberry juice. Add just a splash of elder-flower liquor. Garnish with a sprig of mint, a few cranberries or a lemon wedge.
Adjust quantities to taste.*
