2018 "12 Days of Cocktails" Cocktail Winner
Recipe by Natasha

  • 2 oz. Conniption Navy Strength Gin
  • 3 oz. fresh apple cider
  • 1 oz. Calvados
  • 1 oz. Spiced Cranberry Syrup
  • .5 oz fresh lime juice
  • Few dashes of bitters (Crude Persimmon & Apple bitters or Angostura)  


Combine all ingredients with plenty of ice. Shake, strain and serve in punch glasses. ** This recipe could be easily scaled up and be served in a punch bowl at a party. Just multiply and add directly to a punch bowl with plenty of ice stirred and allow to rest. From Natasha: "Just be sure to collect your guests' car keys at the door - it'll sneak up on you!"  

Spiced Cranberry Syrup
  • 1 1/4 c. cranberry juice  
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar 
  • 1/2 c. white sugar 
  • 6 allspice berries 
  • 4 cloves 
  • 2 cinnamon sticks 
  • 1 star anise
Bring ingredients to a boil and then lower to a simmer for 10 minutes; remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature before straining.
