Muddled Pine

About this Cocktail

I was in the mood for a very labor-intensive Saturday afternoon snow day cocktail.

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 25 fresh cranberries (~1 oz.)
  • 2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz. pine syrup (see below)
  • .75 oz. lemon lime soda
  • 2 dashes Agnostura bitters

Add the bitters, lemon juice, pine syrup and cranberries to a shaker, and muddle the cranberries.

Add the gin or vodka (optional) and ice, and shake until chilled.

Strain into a rocks glass over ice, and top with the lemon-lime soda.

Garnish with 3 cranberries and a sprig of pine.

*Pine syrup: Bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil until dissolved. Reduce heat to low, and add a handful of chopped pine needles. Stir and remove from heat, and let sit for 2 hours. Strain and refrigerate. Keeps up to 3 weeks.
