The most wonderful gin sour for the holidays
The holidays are a wonderful time to reunite with family friends, open a few presents, and experiment with a few cocktails. At least mine are. A lot of classics can be modified to take on a holiday vibe with limited runs to the grocery store, just like this excellent cranberry gin sour.
2 oz. Gin
1 oz. Lemon juice
1 oz. Cranberry syrup*
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 egg white
Muddle a handful of cranberries in a shaker tin. Add all ingredients and shake without ice. Add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a Nick and Nora glass.
*Combine equal parts sugar and water in saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a low boil and add a handful of cranberries. Allow to continue boil for 1 minute than remove from heat. Let sit for 20-30 minutes then strain into container.
