12 Drinks of Christmas – Day 9
Do you ever get the feeling over the holiday’s when you know everything is just perfect? Like when you’re sitting around the tree on Christmas day, telling stories with friends and family. Usually there’s wine, Bailey’s or champagne involved. This year, mix it up a bit. Have some fun. Try a new tradition. This cocktail is sweet and has a refreshing natural taste from the rosemary, which you probably have in the kitchen anyway from making turkey and stuffing – just add a bit to your cocktail!
- 1.5 oz Grand Marnier
- 1.5oz Cranberry Juice (from concentrate)
- 0.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
- 0.5 oz Simple Syrup
- Fresh Rosemary
In a martini shaker, muddle 10-12 rosemary needles with the simple syrup. Add remaining ingredients and then add ice. Shake for about 20 seconds, until the shaker is frosted. Strain into a small rocks glass over ice. Garnish with a fresh sprig of rosemary.
