What ingredients do you use to make this Sparkling Cranberry Gin Cocktail?
This drink has a little bit of tang to it thanks to the fresh lime and cranberry juices. A touch of simple syrup and generous pours of gin and Prosecco keep everything balanced.
Plus, with only five easy-to-find ingredients, this Sparkling Cranberry Gin Cocktail couldn’t be simpler to throw together – always a bonus during the hectic holiday season.
A quick word about cranberry juice.
You will get a range of hues in this Sparkling Cranberry Gin Cocktail depending on the cranberry juice you use. The pale color you see in these pictures almost looks like grapefruit juice, but it’s actually from organic cranberry juice. If you buy a conventional cranberry juice, you will notice a more vibrant color in your cocktail.
Either ingredient works here; it’s merely a color preference.
Vodka and cranberry are a time-tested cocktail combination, so you van definitely make the substitution if that’s the spirit you prefer. (Though I really do encourage you to try the gin at least once!)
Bonus! You can easily turn this cocktail recipe into a batch-style Sparkling Cranberry Gin Punch.
Hosting a crowd? Simply multiply the recipe by the number of guests and add the chilled ingredients to a punch bowl right before guests arrive.
Make sure to set out a bucket with ice for guests to add to their glasses before serving themselves.
Of course, you don’t need to save this Sparkling Cranberry Gin Cocktail just for the holidays. I can see myself sipping this thirst-quencher well into winter. Try a glass tonight; I bet you’ll agree with me.
