Who doesn't love a good cocktail? I am by no means a mixologist, but I love trying and creating new drinks (especially if they include gin). These were so much fun to make and were absolutely delicious! If you are a crazy cocktail lover like myself, you have to make this drink at your next soirée.
1 cup cranberries (I used frozen cranberries because they weren't in season)
1/2 lemon, cut into wedges
1/4 orange, cut into slices
2.5 shots of gin (Hendrick's Gin is my favorite)
1 cup chilled ginger ale
2 mint sprigs
Yield: 2 cocktails
Using a muddler, mash the fruit.
Stir in gin and let sit for at least 5 minutes.
Fill 2 glasses with ice and 1/2 cup ginger ale.
Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds and pour into the glasses.
Add additional ice to each glass and garnish with 3 cranberries and a mint sprig.
