Serves 14-16
  • Cranberry Cordial
  • 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice
  • Granulated sugar
  • Cocktail
  • 1 oz Italian red vermouth
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz Cranberry Cordial
  • 3 1/2 oz dry cider
  • Sugar rim and lemon twist, for garnish

To make the Cranberry Cordial, in a saucepan over medium heat, reduce cranberry juice by about 2/3. Carefully weigh hot liquid and add an equal weight of sugar to reduced cranberry juice. Stir well until sugar has dissolved. Let cool completely.

Add vermouth, lemon juice, and Cranberry Cordial to a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until chilled. Prepare low-ball glass with sugar rim, if desired. Strain into glass over ice. Top with dry cider and garnish with a lemon twist.
