We are a canned-cranberry-sliced-gelatin-blob-holiday-side family..
I don’t eat it. I don’t understand it. Or desire it.
This year, we had a new dish at the table: cooked cranberries with orange juice and spices and other things. Couldn’t tell you what was in it, but it was delicious.
And now I get it. A small dollop of this dish to just round out the heavy turkey feast.
Still, way too much of it.
So here we go.
Gin, my new favorite ingredient.
- 1 large spoonful of your leftover cranberry dish
- 1 ½ ounces of gin
- 2 ounces of orange juice
- 4 ounces (or whatever, fill up the glass) of sparkling water
- optional garnish- mint suggested
Add all the ingredients together and stir.
Have flavored sparkling water? Go for it.
Like more OJ? More cranberry juice? Go for it.
Think of it as a Bubbly Sex On the Beach..
Drink up my friend. Cheers.
