Cranberry Ginger Gin Fizz

One of the things I love the most about winter is all of the produce. Butternut squash, cranberries, pears, brussel sprouts, oranges, oh and did I mention cranberries? Luckily, Cape Code Select Premium Cranberries freezes their cranberries at their peak so you can get them year round! I was given the opportunity to sample some and create a few recipes for them. 

While I made a bunch of things out of JUST one bag, the recipe I am choosing to share is one I am extremely proud of. I channeled my inner bartender and made this killer simple syrup with cranberries. Combined with gin and tonic, this is a killer combo.

  1. The drink looks good to me, though I am not sure whether I am ever going to drink or not since it may not be halal.

  2. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us. download instagram stories

  3. I've seen a couple of other events at other places, but this was my first time in here. It was amazing! Great venue, it's smaller than those bigger New York venues but it is still a fair sized venue. Food was great and I think it's recently renovated - it didn't seem old or anything.
