CranApple Christmas Cocktail

Hello everyone and welcome back to Day 6 of Blogmas! Halfway done and still going strong! Woot! 

The holidays are the perfect time to try out new flavors and experiment with drinks! Whether you're hosting your own party or at another this drink is sure to please. Today I'm going to be sharing an insanely easy and delicious holiday cocktail. I'm keeping it classic with apple and cranberry, a splash of ginger ale and boozing it up with some vodka because #classic. 

What You Will Need: 
Cranberry juice
Ginger ale 
Apple Cider
Garnishes  (apple, cranberry, cinnamon sticks, etc) 
Ice (optional. I had my juice, cider and ginger ale in the fridge so I didn't need ice)

First pour 1 ounce of vodka into your shaker. I used plain old vodka but you could also try a cranberry flavored one for more of a kick. 

Next pour 2 ounces of apple cider. 

Now pour 2 ounces of ginger ale. You could also use regular Sprite/7Up or the cranberry flavored Sprite for more cranberry flavor. 

Lastly, add 4 ounces of cranberry juice to the shaker, put the top on and shake carefully, preferably over a sink since the ginger ale will fizz. 

Once shaken pour either into your glasses, garnish if wanted and serve. Voila! A simple and refreshing holiday cocktail! 

If you were making this for a group just multiple the recipe by however many guests you'll have or just eyeball it. It's really up to you how much alcohol, cranberry and apple flavor you want. 

This drink is festive and pretty dang good if I do say so myself. It's very holiday-y with the hints of cranberry and apple. The ginger ale adds the perfect fizz. And kicking it up a notch is the vodka which adds the perfect finishing note. 

If you want more holiday drinks to try my friend Jacque is doing a Christmas cocktails/drinks series and she has some seriously delicious ones! Check them out over on her blog! 

I hope you guys enjoyed today's holiday post! I'm thinking about doing another holiday cocktail, but like either a hot chocolate or another hot drink. If you'd be interested in seeing one let me know! 

If you try out my CranApple concoction share it with me on Insta or Twitter (@samantha_goble)! I'd love to see your recreations of it! :) 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful December!
