To a shaker add:
1 ounce pine gin
2 ounces apple schnapps
2 ounces fresh Granny Smith apple juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
(you may need to adjust the amount of simple syrup depending on the
sweetness of the juice)
Shake briefly and strain into a highball filled with ice. Garnish with a couple of fresh cranberries and, of course, a small sprig of pine. ’Tis the season to be merry with Christmas in a glass!
