Over Christmas we made the BEST cocktail.
It's from the December issue of Southern Living and it sounded so tasty me and Mama decided to give it a try.
It's an Orange-Cranberry Gin and Tonic.
and look how pretty it looks!
It tastes as good as it looks, I promise.
and it's easy to make.. but so pretty it will definitely impress your guests.
1 (2-inch) Orange Rind
1 Tablespoon Fresh Cranberries*
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Cup Ice Cubes
3 Tablespoons Gin
1 Tablespoon Fresh Orange Juice
1/4 Cup Tonic Water
- Muddle orange rind strip, fresh cranberries, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes, gin, and fresh orange juice. Cover with lid, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled (about 30 seconds). Pour into an 8-oz. glass; top with tonic water. Serve immediately.
*Frozen cranberries, thawed, may be substituted. (It will probably make the drink more colorful, we used fresh cranberries in ours)
