Ingredients:

  • 1½ oz. Belvedere Unfiltered Vodka
  • ½ oz. Ginger Syrup
  • ½ oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 2 oz. Organic Apple Juice

Instructions:

Add all ingredients into glass. Then, twist orange peel over glass and drop into drink. Add ice to ingredients in glass. Keeping the spoon on the edge of the glass, stir your drink gently and bring up your alcohol until the ice is completely covered. I know that, upon stirring, when my peel reaches the top, my drink is ready.
