Cranberry Fizz a Festive Holiday Drink!
Happy Holidays! Happy Holidays! In my opinion, holidays are happiest when libations are involved! I consider myself an amateur mixologist and love to create wonderful tasting drinks for friends and family. The holiday season provides a perfect opportunity for me to make oldies like coquito and winter sangria but I am always open to trying new things. This year, I turned to the Walmart entertaining guide and found a recipe for a cranberry fizz that sounded divine. I have to tell you, I was not disappointed. The recipe was really simple to make, it calls for gin and although I am not normally a gin drinker, it blended perfectly with cranberry juice cocktail and seltzer water. All I can really say is yum!
I shared my tasty libation creation with my sister and beau, they both really enjoyed it tremendously. It is refreshing, a little tart and sweet. I am going to be sure to keep this on the rotation of drinks I make.....for the holidays but really, I’ll mix one up for friends whenever they are looking for something new to try.
Start with a jigger gin, followed by 3 jiggers of cranberry juice cocktail, topped off with 2 jiggers of soda water. This mix, coupled with the sugar and cinnamon rim, garnished with lime is perfection in a glass. So, so tasty. A tip to ensure the best tasting drink - keep your gin in the freezer! It makes a difference and follow the recipe it is easy but be sure to pour the gin first! Without further ado, here is the recipe for the Cranberry Fizz Cocktail.
