I hope that you’ve already made that SUPER easy cranberry syrup featured on the first day of the Thanksgiving Countdown. If not, do it now and then use the leftover cranberries for your sauce or relish for the big meal in a couple of days. Better yet, throw some leftover ginger in that sauce from when you made the ginger syrup. The by-products of cocktail syrups are dope!
Gimlets are one of my favorites. They are so simple, refreshing and, when made with fresh lime juice, hard to mess up. When coming up with this cocktail in order to feature the excellent Dorothy Parker American Gin from Brooklyn’s New York Distilling Company, I wanted to riff off a classic cranberry sauce recipe. My mom always used tangerines or mandarin peels in her version and now I always do! I love those super bright flavors together. And you can’t help but get into the holiday spirit with this one. It’s fresh cranberry time!
