Invite three of your closest friends over to sample Boise Centre’s tasty cranberry martinis! (Serves 4)

INGREDIENTS
—6 oz. gin
—1 cup cranberry juice
—Sliced fresh ginger
—Ginger ale
—Fresh cranberries, for garnish
—Rosemary sprigs, for garnish

DIRECTIONS
Fill four cocktail glasses with ice or chill four martini glasses. Take a cocktail shaker and fill it approximately halfway with ice. Pour in half of the gin, half of the cranberry juice and a few thin slices of fresh ginger. Shake vigorously to chill the contents. Strain the drink over the ice or into two martini glasses. Repeat the steps with the remaining gin, juice and ginger to make two more drinks. Top each drink with a few splashes of ginger ale, and add a few cranberries and rosemary sprigs for garnish. Enjoy!

Scott Castillo-Milburn, owner of mobile bartending service Classic Cocktails by Scott, developed this recipe last summer for a client who was looking for a bourbon-based drink that would feel seasonal and light for an evening party. The night ended with everyone who’d tried it asking for the recipe, and Castillo-Milburn has since replicated it at 10 events. He’s kept the drink a secret—until now. You can hire his company to create this drink for an event, create a new signature cocktail, or even obtain general liability or liquor liability insurance for your venue.  

 

You need to drive up winding roads and pass through two private gates to get to One Gun Ranch, a 24-acre biodynamic farm and animal sanctuary in the Malibu hills that’s owned by Alice Bamford and her partner Ann Eysenring. The sometimes nail-biting—at least for an ex-New Yorker like me—road trip is well worth it.
