Pairs With: Gin
Flavor Profile: Cranberry + Citrus + Peychaud's
You asked, we answered. One of the most frequent questions we get at our holiday markets is - do you have anything with cranberry?
Well, here it is!
Cranberry is a challenging ingredient in cocktails because they are extremely tart, so I wanted to sway to a punch style cocktail where big juicy notes aren't out of the ordinary. The inspiration of this cocktail was really centered around the color red, keeping that beautiful red hue from the cranberry intact and really evoking memories of the holidays.
Peychaud's bitters are a classic coming out of New Orleans, known for the distinct red hue, fitting naturally with my inspirational template. A holiday spiced syrup featuring comforting notes of clove, cinnamon and star anise are welcoming on the nose at that first sip.
This cocktail screams holidays, landing with a sharp color and a delicate touch.
I really hope you enjoy this cocktail.
Instructions: Combine gin and cocktail mix in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 10 seconds until chilled. Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice. Top with soda water and garnish with fresh cranberries and a grapefruit twist.
