The Snowdrift

This recipe easily doubles, or you can pre-batch large amounts of this cocktail by changing ounces to cups. Blend 4 ounces (½ cup) of the pre-mix with ½ cup of the ice. These measurements will make four cocktails.

Cranberry Ginger Syrup: Place ingredients into a small sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer for 1 minute, then turn off heat. Let steep for 30 minutes. Then strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing out the cranberries. Store in a pretty bottle refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Makes about 20 ounces or enough for 12 cocktails.

Make the Cocktail: Measure cocktail ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend on high until ice is totally blended and drink is frothy. Pour into coupe glasses. Garnish with candied ginger and cranberry on a pick if desired.
