This week we wanted to share a cocktail perfect for your Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving dinners. A simple martini but with a sweet addition. We made a simple syrup of cranberries and fresh rosemary herbs which not only made a great cocktail, but also had the house smelling like the holidays. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
