Cranberry Crush Cocktail – fresh and fiery with just the right amount of sweet and tart
Hello from Arizona!
We made it! Although just barely. Wednesday was devoted entirely to travel. We flew a total of 13 hours in the air with a 5 hour lay over and we up and about for over 24 hours. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was to jump in the shower as soon as I could to just wash off all the plane stick.
So I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for a cocktail (or three) right about now.
Cranberry Crush Cocktail
I adapted this recipe slightly from Saveur. I’ve been really into all things cranberries lately that making a cranberry infused cocktail just had to be done. I’m so into it.
Aside from love this is filled with
…100% real cranberry juice
…a squeeze of lime
…fiery ginger beer. I love you Crabbie’s.
It’s a super fast and easy cocktail that doesn’t require a shaker. Just pour everything straight into your cocktail glass and you’re ready to go.
And now I’m to pour myself a drink and then wind down for bed. I think the jet lag is starting to catch up with me. Case and point: I just had to google ‘travel fatigue’ because I couldn’t remember the phrase ‘jet lag’. So before I incriminate myself – I’m off! Hope you enjoy your cocktail and your weekend!
