A refreshing, lightly sweet cranberry orange gin fizz cocktail that works for any occasion!
Although I am not a big drinker and I usually stick to wine, I’ve been really into gin cocktails lately.
Gin is a clear and neutral liquor and pairs pretty much with anything!
A good quality gin is what takes any gin cocktail to the next level.
Gin is made by distillation from a base of grain, usually wheat or barley.
Botanicals along with water are added until the desired flavors are met.
To be called a Gin, the Spirit must have a predominant flavor of Juniper berries.
I prefer my cocktails lightly sweet with some effervescent and a fruit aspect.
Since I make my own homemade jams and I’ve been making a lot of cranberry sauce which turns into a jam-like consistency when it’s refrigerated, I decided to add it to this cocktail.
If you have another homemade jam on hand, give it a try!
For just 1 serving, you can make this drink in your glass.
If you are making a larger quantity, add the ingredients to a pitcher then pour over ice!
