Cranberry Thyme Gin and Tonic
This Cranberry Thyme Gin and Tonic is dressed up for the holidays with seasonal citrus and cranberries. It’s bright, tart, sweet, and earthy – and absolutely perfect.
You know that feeling, when you arrive to a dinner party and the host/hostess hands you a beautiful, handcrafted cocktail when you walk through the door? Isn’t that just the best?!
It’s the little details that I especially appreciate. The things that people do to make a gathering feel extra special. Like a hand lettered menu, a personalized music play list…or a special cocktail, like this Cranberry Thyme Gin and Tonic.

This cranberry thyme gin and tonic is making its way into an annual tradition at our house. I first started serving these pretty beverages last year, at a Friendsgiving gathering that we hosted, and continued to serve them for the next couple months.
The fresh citrus this time of year is always amazing – my preference for these cocktails is Clementines, with small rings for garnish and beautifully sweet juice swirled into the drink.
And the cranberries make a perfect holiday statement (Thanksgiving, Christmas, AND New Year’s), but also easily extend themselves through the remaining months of winter. I like to use cranberries until spring arrives!
Bright, tart, sweet, and earthy – all these flavors play together so very well in this beautiful cocktail.
Make your next holiday gathering extra special. Hand each guest a cranberry thyme gin and tonic!
