Just a few more days until Thanksgiving! Is menu finished? All your shopping done? Are you getting ready to start cooking? All invitations delivered? How about alcohol? Are you serving wine or cocktails? Just in case, here’s another great idea for a holiday drink! It’s tart and yummy!
What you’ll need:
- 2 oz Remy 1738 (or quality cognac of your choice)
- 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp canned cranberry sauce
- splash of orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a martini shaker with ice. Shake well and pour in to a Martini glass rimmed with equal parts sugar and cinnamon. Garnish with an orange peel.
(You can use your own cranberry sauce of course! If you use canned sauce, heat it, then let it cool again. It’s a little hard liquifying it straight out of the can!)
