We have a couple of others that we tried out last weekend. One is from the same book, Cook. Nourish. Glow. and the other is one of our own creations.
From Cook. Nourish. Glow. We chose to make Cardamon, Rose and Pink Grapefruit Gin Fizz.
Here’s how to mix this one up:
In your cocktail shaker, add 1/4 cup of gin, 1/4 teaspoon rose water, 1/3 teaspoon ground cardamom, 1 cup of pink grapefruit juice and the juice of 1 lemon.
Into a glass put some crushed ice and pour the mixture over top of the ice. Splash in some club soda and garnish.
We garnished ours with hibiscus petals, but you can use whatever you like!
We came up with what we like to call a Cran-Pomtini.
We think it just looks so Christmassy! AND it tastes really really good!
In your shaker, add 1/4 cup gin, 1/4 cup of cranberry/pomegranate juice and 1/8 cup grapefruit juice.
You know what to do…shake!
Pour over crushed ice and garnish with some pomegranate seeds and a lemon wedge.
We hope you enjoy these seasonal cocktails we have brought to you. There are so many variations you can try of these depending on your taste and what you have at home. They are all doable without alcohol too, if you’re looking for some virgin cocktails as well.
It is always challenging this time of year to not over indulge. I think we are all guilty of that but first thing is not to beat yourself up. It happens sometimes. You can give some of these a try if you are having an evening of entertaining and enjoying the festivities and they will taste great and not be loaded with sugar.
