Christmas is quickly approaching and this week we are happy to share with you an excellent Christmas cocktail. Whether you are toasting on this Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, it is the perfect cocktail to top off your holiday celebrations.
This cocktail is quick and easy to make. There is no need for fussy ingredients. It is light and a bit tart so it pairs nicely with a Christmas ham or delicious holiday sweets.
To make this delicious, festive cocktail you need your favorite gin, lemon juice, cranberry simple syrup and an egg white. There is a little bit of prep with creating your own cranberry simple syrup. It’s not very time consuming, but you will want this prepped before guests arrive.
We’ve made simple syrups in other recipes before, like in the Mojito and The Savannah Special. Just follow the recipe or take a look back at our other posts.
Garnish this cocktail with some frozen cranberries and a sprig of rosemary and you have a holiday winner!

Look for a post Wednesday or Thursday for one more holiday recipe. We are going to be busy this week completing shopping, baking and wrapping. What are your plans for the countdown to Christmas?
