Ingredients

For the ginger syrup:
  • 4 -inch piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
For the drink:
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 cups vodka or gin
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 1 cup ginger syrup, or to taste
  • Splash club soda
  • Shaved ginger

Directions

For the ginger syrup: Place all syrup ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until sugar dissolves and the ginger is infused in the syrup, about 20 minutes. Strain and allow to cool fully before use.

For the drink: Crush the frozen cranberries in a large glass pitcher. Add the lime juice and their juiced wedges to the pitcher. Pour in the vodka, cranberry juice, and ginger syrup. Put ice in low-ball glasses and fill glasses about 2/3 full. Top off with club soda and garnish with a shaving of fresh ginger.
