The first toast of the season calls for thunderous refreshment. It’s high time we cast away those predictable half-flat flutes and make way for the peculiar Hendrick’s French 75.

Unmistakably festive in both appearance and taste, Hendrick’s Cranberry Fizz is a curiously refreshing libation guaranteed to spread holiday cheer. Best served in a highball glass and garnished with a slice of cucumber, this delectable cocktail features an exquisite blend of Hendrick’s Gin, cranberry juice and your choice of soda or sparkling wine.
