Hi Gang! This is such a fun recipe! We got turned onto “Moscow Mules” about a year ago. When I drink hard liquor it’s Vodka.
I thought that I’d give this a spin…
Guess that I’m a gin drinker on occasion!
Brooklyn Crafted has come up with a TASTY lemon/lime Ginger Beer. I’m in heaven!
Many thanks to the PR firm that sent me the goodies!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, All! (I’m guessing that we’ll be indulging in these year-round!)

¾ C sugar
¾ C water
1 C fresh cranberries
1 lemon, cut into wedges
½ orange, cut into slices
1.5 C dry gin, such as Tanqueray
1 C chilled Brooklyn Crafted Ginger Beer mini in Lemon/Lime
4 mint sprigs
Bring sugar & water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stir until water is dissolved.
Remove from heat; pour off all but one cup of syrup, reserving any extra for another use.
Heat the syrup to a boil and then reduce heat to medium.
Add the cranberries and simmer for 2-3 min until they just begin to burst.
Remove from heat and let cool in syrup.
Place 2 T drained cranberries and 6 T cranberry syrup in a large pitcher; add the lemon wedges and orange slices.
Using a muddler or wooden spoon, vigorously mash the fruit.
Stir in gin and let steep for at least 5 minutes. Strain into a medium pitcher.
