My new favorite mixer is Cranberry Simple Syrup. I plan on using it in most of my cocktails during the holidays. Also, it would make a great homemade gift to a mixologist friend over the holidays.
Make up a batch of the Cranberry Simple Syrup and stick it in the fridge to pull out when you want a holiday cocktail.
