A perfect welcome cocktail to any holiday party and one that can also be served alcohol-free.

2 oz. gin
1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz. pure cranberry juice
1 oz. rosemary and sage syrup*
3 oz. soda water
rosemary sprigs

To a tall glass, add gin, juices and syrup. Add ice and top with soda. Garnish with rosemary.

*Rosemary and sage syrup: In a small saucepan combine 4 sprigs of rosemary, 10 sage leaves, 2 cups granulated sugar and 2 cups fresh water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain liquid to remove solids. Bottle and refrigerate for up to 30 days.
