Orange-Cranberry Gin & Tonic

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
