A holiday inspired cocktail
To me, this cocktail tastes like the holidays.
It’s got cranberry, apple, and cinnamon which just screams winter to me. But those flavors are usually served warm in a cider or mulled wine.
This one is served chilled and utilizes lemon and ginger which make it quite refreshing.
Serving suggestions include:
- with vodka
- with whiskey
- with soda water (to keep it virgin)
Make sure to throw a fresh cranberry or two on top and you’ve got yourself a craft cocktail.
A whole food juice best for mixing up a cocktail
