Sparkling Cranberry Ginger Cocktail

Enjoy a glass or two of my Sparkling Cranberry Ginger Cocktail. It’s a warming and fiery blend of cranberries, ginger beer and cranberry liqueur.

I absolutely love this drink. It’s so refreshing, warming and fruity but also has that delicious alcoholic buzz which is perfect for Christmas parties. It’s such a quick drink to make which doesn’t require shaking so just pour it into a glass and go. I like to add fresh cranberries and a slice of lime when I make it to make it a little extra festive. You can also make this in to a large punch bowl by sizing the recipe up.

The mix of cranberry and ginger is a really wonderful flavour combination. The squeeze of fresh lime really makes the ginger and cranberry taste pop. If you wanted to make an alcohol free version you could just make a similar drink with cranberry juice and ginger beer and a squeeze of lime.

Making a Sparkling Cranberry Ginger Cocktail

For this recipe I used Cranes Cranberry Liqueur. It is a delicious tipple perfect for cocktails. I’ve used in a few cocktails so far but it is also perfect for adding to champagne for a little flavour and colour. Especially in time for Christmas. Find out more about Cranes.

The Liqueur is hand crafted from the highest quality cranberries sourced from Wisconsin USA. It is then infused with natural blood orange juices and orange rind. Making it a wonderful Christmas flavour drink which you will be using all year for it’s fruitiness and freshness. It also works so well added to a gin and tonic.

I included Cranes in my my top 5 drinks Christmas Gift Guide.
