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! Happy Holidays!
