  • 2 oz cranberry juice

  • 0.5 oz lemon juice
  • 2 tsp simple syrup or sugar free simple syrup
  • 1 oz gin
  • 2-3 dashes orange bitters
  • 2 ounces of ginger beer


  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 0.5 oz lemon juice
  • 2 oz ginger beer
  • 2 tsp simple syrup or sugar free simple syrup

Pitcher: If you’d like to make a pitcher of this recipe to serve 8-10 people, here is the adjusted recipe.
  • 14 oz Gin
  • 3 oz lemon juice
  • 20 oz cranberry juice
  • 6 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 20 dashes of orange bitters
  • 8 oz orange juice
  • 12 oz of ginger beer
Sugared Cranberries: You can garnish with fresh cranberries or use my recipe for candied cranberries. 
Skinny Cocktail: Follow these swaps if you want to make this cranberry gin cocktail “skinny”. Use unsweetened cranberry juice, monk fruit sweetener, or Swerve for the simple syrup, and use soda water instead of ginger beer. 
Dried Oranges: You can find dried oranges for the garnish at most local grocery stores in the dried fruit section. Trader Joe’s and Sprouts have a nice selection as well.
