One of my favorite cocktails is a gin & tonic. While I love a classic one, I have no problem making it festive for the holidays. This recipe looks delicious (and pretty!) and will sure to be a hit at any holiday party.
Orange-Cranberry Gin & Tonic
1 (2-inch) orange rind strip
1 tablespoon fresh cranberries
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup ice cubes
3 tablespoons gin
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/4 cup tonic water
Muddle orange rind strip, fresh cranberries, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, gin, and fresh orange juice. Cover & shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled. Pour into a glass, top with tonic water & enjoy!
*frozen cranberries, thawed, can be substituted
