Rosemary Cranberry Sour Recipe

Our showroom kitchen

Do you rock a signature cocktail when you are hosting? My boss-babe gal-pal, Tracey, of Crown Photography & Film inspired me to hop on the signature cocktail train and I'm really digging this recipe from Strathcona Spirits Distillery in Edmonton called a Rosemary Cranberry Sour.

We had so much fun doing this little photo session together that we have decided to do one a month and post them so you can create and enjoy your own little drink feature! We have a fun idea for January already and can’t wait to develop it! If you want to follow along this fun adventure, follow Crown Photography & Film and Locale Designs on Instagram.

If you are interested in a tour of the Strathcona Spirits Distillery in the heart of Old Strathcona you can book your tour & tasting at www.strathconaspirits.ca.

Rosemary Cranberry Sour

1.5 oz Strathcona Barrel Aged Gin

0.75 oz rosemary simple syrup

0.75 oz lemon juice

3 oz cranberry juice

Fill cocktail shaker 2/3 full with ice. Add all ingredients, close lid and shake vigorously for 30 seconds (or until you hand is really friggin’ cold). Pour over ice in your favorite glass. Garnish with fresh or frozen cranberries & a sprig of rosemary.

To make your own Rosemary simple syrup, boil 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar and then simmer for 5 minutes with a few springs of rosemary. Strain and cool.
