Christmas Cranberry Cocktail

Looking for a fabulous cocktail to sip while you wrap those final presents? This sweet cosmo-ish drink tastes like Christmas! You can even add your own personal touch by adding decorative touches like frozen cranberries, a lime wedge, or frosted/sugared rosemary like we did!



  • 1 cup vodka or gin
  • 1/4 Triple sec
  • 1 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • Lime juice

Mix all ingredients together (give them a shake with ice cubes). Run a lime wedge along the rim of the glass, then press into sugar.



  • 4-5 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 c water

Dissolve the sugar in the water. Dip the rosemary into sugar mixure. Tap off excess, then lay to dry for 30-90 minutes. Before using as a garnish, sprinkle some dry suger on the leaves to make them sparkle!

Hi Joy.
This sounds soooo good!  I drink a lot of cranberry juice and Fresca but the gin sounds like a nice substitute for those cocktail hours.  Thanks for sharing.
