Don’t call it a martini…

For this one, we used our favorite martini ratio of 3:1 for gin to vermouth but swapped the vermouth for a great local cranberry liquor, Craneberry, from GrandTen Distilling, in Massachusetts.

Cape Cod meets Sonoma Valley with this ode to the Massachusetts cranberry. We start with a bold, overproof white rum, which is infused in our still with heaps of Cape Cod cranberries and finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks. The rich, molasses-based rum serves as a solid foundation for the play between the tartness of cranberries and the dry, tannin-like finish of oaked wine. Craneberry adds an elegant layer to champagne, cocktails, or may be enjoyed neat after a hearty meal.
