• 1c Water
• 1c Sugar
• 2 tbsp Ginger
• 1oz gin
• Berry Cranders
• Fresh cranberries
• Fresh thyme
First make the simple syrup: bring one cup water, one cup sugar and the two tablespoons of freshly grated ginger root to a simmer. Simmer for 5 mins and then strain and allow to cool.
Add one ounce of the ginger syrup to an iced glass. Then measure and add one ounce Gin. Top off with Blake’s Berry Cranders Hard Cider and stir to mix. Garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme, sugar coated cranberries and candied ginger.
Note: Snow covered cranberries- use the ginger simple syrup and coat a few fresh cranberries with it.
Allow to slightly dry (a couple mins allows them to become tacky) and roll in fresh sugar.
