Cocktail of the Week (Part 2): Cranberry Daiquiri

This recipe is from the great book Mix Shake Stir, a collection of cocktails from acclaimed chef Danny Meyer's New York restaurants. The book says this is Gramercy Tavern's all-time best-selling cocktail. It's gonna be perfect as we celebrate Christmas Eve.

Cranberry Daiquiri
Makes 1 cocktail.

1 1/2 tablespoons Drunken Cranberries, plus 1 ounce of their liquid (I posted the recipe for Drunken Cranberries yesterday.)
Crushed ice
Ice cubes
2 ounces dark rum
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

Thread 1/2 tablespoon cranberries onto a small skewer; set aside. Place a small amount of crushed ice in a chilled martini glass. Add remaining tablespoon cranberries; set aside.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add rum, cranberry liquid, and lime juice. Cover and shake vigorously to combine; strain into prepared glass. Garnish with skewered cranberries and serve immediately.
