This festive gin cocktail gets its sweet-tart flavor from maple syrup and Meyer lemon juice. The recipe comes from the Chowgirls Killer Catering cookbook. Feeling fancy? Garnish each glass with a sage leaf or, at the holidays, sugared cranberries.
Available in winter and early spring, Meyer lemons are a hybrid of oranges and lemons. You can substitute 3/4 cup orange juice and 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice.
