Muddle orange rind strip, fresh cranberries, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes, gin, and fresh orange juice. Cover with lid, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled (about 30 seconds). Pour into an 8-oz. glass; top with tonic water. Serve immediately.
I think the gin cranberry combo is underestimated. Delicious recipe, the fizz adds a lightness and freshness...Thanks!
I made a version that included fresh squeezed OJ and a hint of cinnamon infused in the gin:
Cranberry, saddle up.You’re pulling double duty at my place | J is for Judy!
