Festive Pink Gin

1 min read
Make up bottles of festive gin as a thoughtful New Year gift. Serve with tonic, or enjoy with a dash of prosecco.

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes (+5 Hours Steeping)

Cooking Time: N/A

Serves: 4


  • 200g fresh of frozen cranberries
  • 700ml vodka
  • 2 tbsp juniper berries, bruised
  • 4 cardamom pods, bruised
  • Clementines, zest peeled into strips
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 cloves


  1. If the cranberries are fresh, put them in a bowl and burst with the end of a rolling pin. Put everything into a sterilised 1-litre sealable flip-top jar. Seal and shake so the sugar dissolves. Leave in a cool, dark place for 24 hours.

  2. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, then bottle.
