Cranberry Spice Martini

This time of year, I’m always looking for some sort of spice element in my drinks. In this martini you’ll find both spice and warmth from the ginger and red wine, a tart kick from the cranberry and crème de cassis rounds it out with a nice fruity note.


Equipment: Chilled martini glass, shaker, strainer

1½ oz ginger liqueur (I love The King’s Ginger liqueur)

1½ oz red wine (Use something like a tempranillo)

¼ oz crème de cassis

2 oz cranberry juice

Twist of orange or candied ginger for garnish


Combine ingredients in shaker with ice and shake for 10 seconds. Strain into chilled martini glass and garnish with a twist of orange or a piece of candied ginger. Cheers!
