Cranberry Negroni – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without a signature cocktail and on this Thanksgiving, since it’s just a few of you, making a special drink is easy enough to do.  There are no needed punch bowls, or simmering crock pots of mulled wine at a smaller gathering, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull out all the stops.  A traditional cocktail with a twist, no pun intended, should shape things up quickly in any home, and a classic, like a Negroni, is always impressive.

Gin, Campari and dry vermouth are the players in a standard Negroni, but adding a splash of cranberry juice to the party, literally brings in some new light, and a slight fruitiness that I think most adults will enjoy.  I like to sip on a Negroni up, in a martini glass, because who wants the ice to water it down, but if you like your cocktails to stay cold, serve it in a highball glass on the rocks.  The floating fresh cranberries add a special touch to the presentation and let’s face it, we all could use a little more style during these times of Covid.
