Christmas Cranberry Gin Cocktail

December 8, 2019Sew White

This is definitely going to be a Christmas favourite! My Christmas Cranberry Gin Cocktail is a Christmas twist on a classic gin cocktail.

Now this is a Christmas cocktail! My Christmas Cranberry Gin Cocktail is perfect for parties and gin fans too. The mix of cranberries, gin and soda is a refreshing way to enjoy a cocktail. If you are more of a tonic fan you can use tonic. I would recommend soda as it works so well with cranberry. It keeps the flavour strong without taking away anything from it.

Making up a beautiful Christmas gin cocktail with fresh cranberries, rosemary and lime for the Christmas Cranberry Gin Cocktail

Decorating the glass is so super easy too. It doesn’t take much to make this drink look very inviting and ultra Christmassy. I added ice, fresh cranberries, a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lime. It’s like a Christmas dream. Especially in the always stunning gin balloon glasses. If you have friends or family who like gin a pair of balloon glasses is a great Christmas present to give.

Ready to enjoy! How gorgeous does this look!

Like most of my drinks this is super easy to make. No shaking, just pour it all in and give it a little stir and you’re ready to go. I think the rosemary really makes it look beautiful. It also adds a wonderful sent as you drink it.

This drinks goes perfectly with my Christmas graze table.

Christmas graze table

Graze tables are a wonderful centre piece for a party. So in time for the festive season I have created a fantastic Christmas graze table.

For this gin cocktail I used the very moreish Brighton Gin which I featured on my Top 5 Eco Presents Christmas Gift Guide. I used their Seaside Strength Navy Gin for this recipe. It’s a fresh gin with juniper, fresh orange and lime peel, locally-grown coriander seed which really helps boost the Christmas cocktail.
