The Winter Cocktail You'll Love
I'll be honest, with all the holiday parties + the whole festive time of year, I've been drinking, um . . . a lot *not complaining* but, sometimes it's hard to find a light + fresh holiday cocktail that doesn't slap on the sugar, cinnamon + some sort of dairy product. This is why I'm so thrilled to introduce you to this Brit + Co recipe
light + fresh cranberry ginger gin deliciousness
This cocktail is the perfect combination of tartness ( cranberry ), sweetness ( pear ) + warmth ( ginger ) while still being light, fresh + fragrant. I know you will love this just as much as I love drinking it, right now : )
| Makes 2 drinks |
- Fresh cranberries
- 1/2 pear
- 1 Lime
- 2 Tsp. Simple Syrup
- Gin *I used Tanqueray
- Ginger Beer *I used Bundaberg
- Sprig of Rosemary
- Handful of Ice
Starting with your cocktail shaker + muddler, muddle 10 cranberries + 6 slices of pear until juice is released. Next add juice from 1/2 a lime + a couple tsp of simple syrup. Add 2 shots of gin (or really, however much you like...)
Add some ice + shake her up! Strain liquid evenly between glasses ( I used a highball kind of glass). Add half a bottle of ginger beer per each glass. Voila!
Garnish as you like, per Brit + Co, I added a sprig of rosemary, which adds amazing fragrance, + fresh cranberries for some color.
