This gin cocktail uses a spiced cordial I make from cranberries (it's an older recipe from 2017!). The Sri Lanka blend lends great depth, and makes the drink warming and refreshing at the same time. Included are some ideas if you'd like to skip making the syrup.
1.5 ounces of your favorite gin
1.5 ounces Roasted Cranberry Cordial
Fresh lemon wheel for garnish
Shake the gin and cordial together over ice and strain into an eight-ounce wine goblet or collins glass filled with ice.
Fill with seltzer and give the cocktail a gentle stir.
Garnish with the lemon wheel.
• Alcohol free? This beverage is great with just the cordial and seltzer. If you'd like to get a hint of gin flavor, try muddling a couple juniper berries in your shaker along with a few dhania seeds and a couple strips of fresh lemon peel. Add 1.5 ounces of seltzer and the cordial and prepare as above. The seltzer will help to extract flavor during the shake.
• If you're not in the mood to roast cranberries or don't have them, you can make a quick approximation with sweetened cranberry juice. Infuse a cup of juice over low heat with 1 teaspoon of Sri Lanka N14 for 10 minutes, allow to cool and strain, then add fresh lemon juice until it's noticeably tart.
• Another common variant of the fizz includes egg whites, and I like the addition in this cocktail as well. In a shaker without ice add the gin, cordial, and one egg white (you can use pasteurized eggs if you have health concerns). Shake hard for 30 seconds, then add ice and shake until very cold. Strain into a collins glass and gently add seltzer down the side of the glass to fill.
