Treat yourself to a festive Cranberry Gin and Tonic (or two, or three) this holiday season! You know that you deserve it.
Here we have taken a standard (and perfectly tasty) G&T recipe and made it even more delicious and festive with the addition of cranberry juice and fresh cranberries.
To be honest, I’ve always thought that (some) gin and tonics sometimes taste like a Christmas tree. Or at least taste the way that a Christmas tree smells. Know what I mean? Maybe? No?
Either way, the red from the cranberry juice and cranberries plus the green from the limes means that these drinks are all dressed up for the holidays.
If this Cranberry Gin and Tonic isn’t cutting it, or if you’re looking for more cranberry cocktails, check out my Cranberry Vanilla Moscow Mule recipe!
- 1.5 oz gin, see notes
- 2 oz cranberry juice
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 2 oz tonic water
- lime wedge and fresh cranberries, for garnish
Over ice, combine the gin, cranberry juice, and lime juice in an old fashioned glass.
Top with the tonic water and garnish with a lime wedge and cranberries.
Notes: I like Conniption American Dry Gin.
