New Brunswick Holiday Cranberry Cosmo

Tis the holiday season and it wouldn’t be the holidays without a Cranberry Cosmopolitan cocktail made with cranberries grown and harvested right here in New Brunswick!

Yes, I might be a coastal caesar kind of mermaid most days, but even I love to switch things up over the holidays and add some classics to the bar cart.

That includes a Cranberry Cosmopolitan made with—you guessed it—New Brunswick cranberry juice.

And just in time for New Year’s Eve celebrations, I thought I’d share one last recipe from my New Brunswick Holiday Food & Drink Guide created in partnership with New Brunswick Food and Beverages for the 2021 holiday season.

Because you can’t ring in 2022 empty handed!

New Brunswick is home to a number of incredibly vodka producers including Blue Roof Distillers, Distillerie Fils du Roy, and Devil’s Keep which I recently discovered since publishing the Holiday Food & Drink Guide.

So next time you’re at your local NB Liquor, make sure to check out the made in New Brunswick vodkas for your holiday cocktails.

You might be wondering ‘What is a Seabuckthorn?’—And no, it doesn’t actually come from the sea.

Seabuckthorn is recognized as one of nature’s most powerfully nutritious and healing plants offering one of the widest ranges of nutrients from a single source found on the globe, including Antioxidants, Vitamins, Minerals, Polyphenols, Omega Fatty Acids, Carotenoids, and Phytosterols. Sea Buckthorn fruit, seeds, and leaves have components that assist with cell regeneration, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

And it’s grown and produced right here in New Brunswick by the folks at Big Sky Seabuckthorn!

It’s not too late to download my New Brunswick Holiday Food & Drink Guide. Catch it here and you’ll have all of the inspiration you need to entertain this week and into 2022.
