This is the Christmas cocktail that you need in your life this year. Whether you’re looking for a bit of warmth in your drink or something with enough flavour to drown out awkward chat with your relatives, this is the festive tiple for you.
- 80ml dark spiced rum (I used Kraken)
- 80ml cranberry juice
- 120ml ginger beer
- 20ml cinnamon simple syrup (or 10ml maple syrup and a couple pinches of ground cinnamon)
- 20ml fresh lime juice
- Lime wedges, cranberries and cinnamon sticks to decorate
- Ice cubes
Two options – make in the glass or the cocktail shaker
In the glass
Fill two tall tumblers or highballs two-thirds full of ice, then add the rum and both the maple syrup and cinnamon. Mix a little. Add in the other ingredients one by one: cranberry juice, ginger beer, lime juice and garnishes.
In a shaker
Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake gently, pour into glasses.
