A way to celebrate the holidays, this Cranberry Rosé Fizz is the cocktail to cheers with!
A combination of sweet and tart plus a little sparkle, this cocktail has all of my favourite holiday flavours.
I love creating cocktails for the holiday season. This Cranberry Rosé Fizz is perfect to make for your guests at Christmas or to celebrate the New Year!
This cocktail starts with making an easy cranberry jam; these flavours are the tart base.
Then we add in rosé, gin and top with ginger-ale and garnish with sugared rosemary for a finishing touch! I like to use a more fruit-forward rosé to balance the tartness of the cranberry jam; one of my favourites is XOXO Wines Rosé (this is not sponsored, I just like their Rosé a lot!)
Cranberry Rosé Fizz
This Cranberry Rosé Fizz is the perfect cocktail for the holidays and to celebrate the New Year! A combination of tart and sweet, this Cranberry Rosé Fizz is garnished with sugared rosemary for a lovely sparkling touch.
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/8 tsp cardamom
- 1 cup cranberries
Sugared Rosemary Garnish
- 4-6 rosemary stems (cut to fit nicely as a glass garnish)
Cranberry Rosé Fizz (makes 1)
- 1 tbsp cranberry jam
- 1 ounce gin
- 4 ounces rosé One of my favourite rosés to use is XOXO Wines Rosé
- 2-4 ounces ginger-ale
- ice cubes
To make the cranberry jam, add the sugar, water, cardamom and cranberries to a pot. Bring to a boil over high heat and when the cranberries start to pop, turn the heat to medium. Let simmer for 5 minutes and then remove from the heat to cool.
Rinse your rosemary in water, shake to get excess water off and then roll through the sugar to coat – do this for each piece of rosemary and then set aside.
To make one Cranberry Rosé Fizz cocktail
To a glass, add 1 heaping tablespoon of the cranberry jam. Then add the gin and rosé and stir a couple of times. Lastly, add in a couple ounces of ginger-ale, ice cubes and garnish with sugared rosemary. Enjoy!
The best part about this Cranberry Rosé Fizz is that you can make everything ahead of time. And then when you’re ready, simply mix up a cocktail for your guests and yourself!
