This Cranberry Ginger Syrup is the base of many holiday cocktails. We mix it with vodka, gin, make a martini, a mimosa and it is an awesome margarita with lime and some green salt around the rim. Sparkling water for a festive non alcoholic option. The cocktails are a pretty red, tasty and festive – if is one of the holiday traditions starting in November in our house!
