We were inspired to play around with some cranberry vodka we had got from Wild Roots and the result was this fabulous recipe that is perfect for the Christmas holiday.
Getting into the spirit of Christmas isn't hard with this beautiful drink. So easy to tweak the ingredients to make it to your liking.
Christmas Cranberry Cocktail
1 shot cranberry vodka
¾ cup cranberry juice
1/2 shot Lavender Simple Syrup
top with champagne or sparkling water
Garnish with Lavender Cocktail Picks and cranberries.
To your glass add all ingredients and stir.
To rim your glass you will need 2 plates, on one you will place about 1 Tbsp of lavender simple syrup on the second plate lavender sugar (or you can use plain sugar). Dip your glass edge into the syrup until all edges are wet. Then into the sugar.
See below on how we sugar coated our cranberries and lavender.
Sugar Coated Garnish
Here is how we sugar coated our lavender and cranberries.
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
To a small bowl add an egg white.
With a whisk beat the egg whites until light and frothy.
In a second bowl add 1/3 cup of lavender sugar (or plain will work).
With a small paint brush, paint a little egg white and dust with sugar.
Turn your oven to 150-200℉ until dried (about couple hours).
