Zingy, bright, sweet, and spicy, this cranberry calvados ginger fizz is the perfect antidote to the cold, gray winter days ahead. Spicy ginger beer perfectly balances the sweet tang of calvados, and fresh cranberries and thyme provide bright and herbal notes.

Ingredient Note: I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of Boulard Calvados V.S.O.P. to taste, and it definitely raises the bar. Crafted since 1825 in France, Boulard offers a full range of Calvados varieties for all your cocktail needs. The V.S.O.P. in particular tastes of vanilla, wood, and sweet apples. It draws flavor from time spent aging in French oak, lending it a distinct flavor hard to come by in other calvados brands. It tastes delicate and velvety on your palate, works beautifully with the cranberry and ginger in this recipe. Enjoy it straight to really appreciate the flavor nuances.
