RECIPE : Cranberry Ginger Smash Cocktail
I’m not going to lie to you, before trying this recipe, anytime I saw Gin on a cocktail menu I would be a little intimidated and opt for a fruity vodka concoction instead.
This Cranberry Ginger Smash recipe is deceivingly easy to make and you’re bound to have some of the ingredients lying around during the holidays.
3 Slices Fresh Ginger
8 Whole Fresh Cranberries
2 tsp Sugar
2 oz of your favorite Gin
1.5 oz Apple Cider
.5 oz Lemon Juice
Garnish : 1 stick Cinnamon
Muddle the Ginger, Whole Cranberries & Sugar in a shaker . Once muddled, add the remaining ingredients with ice. Shake and pour unstrained into a glass . Garnish with a stick of cinnamon.
After trying this drink i’ve realized that ginger , cranberry and gin are a great mix. They are like a family during the holidays - great on their own but at their best when they are together.
