It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s almost the weekend! So like, yay? Right! So to prep for a fun one, we are sharing a yummy update on the classic G&T that Kyle loves so much! How about you add a little cranberry? And enjoy! Xx

  • 3/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Splash of orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Fresh English Thyme leaves
  • Gin of choice
  • Tonic of choice

To create the cran mix: In a small saucepan, mix together the cranberries, sugar, water, splash of orange juice and vanilla extract. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, pressing the cranberries with the back of your spoon until they pop. Add the fresh thyme and smash with the back of your spoon.

To create the cocktail: add about 1 fluid ounces of syrup to each glass. Top with a few cubes of ice, 2 fluid ounces of gin and then top with tonic. Mix and garnish with fresh sprigs of thyme. Yum!
