The Merry Mother Christmas Cocktail

As we head into the festive season we thought what better way to celebrate than with our very own Christmas Cocktail, aptly named by you guys: The Merry Mother. This cranberry cocktail combines M0THER gin, tonic (*a splash of fizz if your feeling extra naughty), fresh lemon juice and a simple homemade cranberry syrup that is irresistible! Garnish with sugar coated cranberries for an elegant festive touch.
