Cranberry Ginger Cosmopolitan

Thanksgiving and the holiday season are just around the corner and will be here before we know it. There’s a lot of cooking, and shopping, and mingling to be done. When friends and family come calling, why not offer to mix up a cocktail that’s just as festive as the holidays? Here’s a sweet and spicy twist on a classic cosmopolitan with cranberries and candied ginger – we’re callin’ it The Cranberry Ginger Cosmopolitan!



  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 2 tbsp ginger beer
  • 1 1/2 tbsp thawed cranberry juice cocktail concentrate
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger


In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients and ice, shake, then strain into a Martini glass. *Try it with a garnish: a slice of crystallized ginger, or the peel of the lemon will add a festive touch.
