  • 3 oz of gin
  • 1 tablespoon of cranberry syrup (or, one shot of cranberry juice) – see instructions below
  • 3 oz tonic water
  • ice (to serve on-the-rocks)


For Cranberry Syrup:
In a small sauce pan, place 2 cups cranberry juice, ½ cup red wine or port, 2 TBLS sugar and reduce on medium heat to a syrup consistency. This makes about 1/3 cup cranberry syrup.


You can serve this on-the-rocks or as a martini. The cranberry syrup gives it a great body that works either way. Cheers!
