And The Ivy
2019 Day 9 "12 Days of Cocktails" Cocktail Winner
Recipe by Madison
For two servings:
- 3 oz. Conniption Navy Strength Gin
- 4 oz. Fresh pineapple juice
- 1.5 oz. Fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. Amaro Montenegro
- 1 oz. Winter spice syrup*
- 1 oz. Candied cranberries for garnish**
- 3 oz. Whole milk for clarification
- Mint for garnish
For Winter spice syrup: Mix 4 cups demerara sugar, 2 cups water, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon ground allspice, and 1 teaspoon ground cloves.
For Candied cranberries: Add a cup of cranberries to a saucepan with 1/2 cup sugar and heat stirring occasionally. Once cranberries have begun to break up remove from heat and store in the refrigerator. Save the resulting syrup to use in the cocktail as well.
Mix all ingredients except milk and garnishes then pour undiluted over milk. Lightly stir. Leave in refrigerator for two hours. Pass through two coffee filters then stir with ice. Pour one serving over a large ice cube and arrange mint and cranberries to look like a beautiful holly leaf. Drink while reading your favorite holiday book and share the second serving with someone special.
