Today’s featured cocktail is the Gracefully Made Cocktail. Inspired by blogger and fashion influencer, Grace Sonde. Her selected ensemble is a cranberry cold shoulder blouse with a ripped jeans and combat boots. The simplicity of this outfit reminded me of a simple ingredient that has a big impact on family gatherings. The Gracefully Made Cocktail is a Cognac-based cocktail with cranberry sauce, lime juice, and ginger syrup. The focus on this cocktail comes from the tanginess of the cranberry sauce and the tartness of the lime juice. These two together offer a great compliment to the chosen cognac, Fussigny, which offer tasting notes of pear, spice, and a vanilla undertone. Fussigny was also a featured spirit at Cultivating cocktails!
