Directions

  1. Three days before planning to drink, remove the lid and pour 12 ounces of vodka into the Camp Craft Cocktails jar. Replace the lid.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 3 days.
  3. The day you plan to serve the cocktail, dissolve 1/2 cup sugar in 1/2 water over medium heat (do not boil) to make a simple syrup. Let cool.
  4. Using tongs, dip the rosemary sprigs into the simple syrup  and coat. Remove the rosemary to a wire rack and let dry for 30 minutes before proceeding.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to drop the cranberries into the simple syrup and retrieve them. Let dry for 10 minutes.
  6. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of superfine sugar to a very small plate. Roll the rosemary sprigs and the cranberries in the sugar and return to the rack until ready to use.
  7. When ready to serve, rub the rim of a chilled martini glass with fresh citrus and roll in the remaining sugar.
  8. Pour the cocktail into an ice filled cocktail shaker, shake and strain into each glass.
  9. Garnish as desired.
