Spiced Cranberry Cosmopolitan

Posted by on


The holiday season has arrived at long last, and this spiced cosmo has us feeling some type of way. Whoever says that cosmos are "soooo 1990s Sex & The City vibes" is well...not wrong, but who cares? They are delicious! This spiced cranberry rendition of the cocktail classic will transport you to the chicest NYC holiday party, where everyone is wearing sequined outfits and drinking from fancy stemware. Flavors of cinnamon, allspice and clove will warm you right up, while tart cranberry and floral St. Germain make it impossible for you to just drink one. Best of all, it's so easy to make (it just needs a good shake.)

ingredients

2oz vodka (I prefer Grey Goose!)
.25oz Rosemary-infused dry vermouth*
.25oz St. Germain
1oz spiced cranberry syrup*
.75oz fresh lime juice

rosemary-infused vermouth
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 cup dry vermouth

Combine fresh rosemary and dry vermouth, infuse at room temperature overnight or for up to 24 hours. Discard rosemary, and store vermouth in the fridge.

spiced cranberry syrup
8oz unsweetened cranberry juice
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
Peels from 1 orange
2 Spicewalla Cinnamon Sticks
3 Spicewalla Whole Allspice
½ tsp kosher salt
3 Spicewalla Whole Cloves

preparation
1. Heat dry spices in a saucepan over medium-low heat until aromatic, stirring constantly so as not to burn the spices.
2. Add cranberry juice, sugars, salt and orange peel and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
3. Use a fine strainer or cheesecloth to strain spices out, then bottle or store in a container of your choice.
4. To assemble your cocktail, add vodka, rosemary-vermouth, St. Germain, spiced cranberry syrup, and freshly squeezed lime juice to a shaker tin. Fill tin with ice and shake vigorously.
5. Strain into a frozen coupe glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
