Fill a cocktail tin halfway with ice. Add simple syrup, lemon juice, and gin, then shake well for 10 to 15 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass over a few cubes of ice. Garnish with rosemary sprig, skewered cranberries, and orange peel.
Cranberry Spice Simple Syrup
- In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine cinnamon, orange peel, cranberries, and one cup water. Simmer for 30 minutes, then remove from heat and let cool.
- Strain through a mesh strainer into a jar or lidded container, then add sugar. Stir until sugar has dissolved, about 1 minute. Add rosemary and allow to cool completely. Remove rosemary before serving. Syrup can be stored in refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks.
