In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

Here’s a clever cocktail idea for all you crafty Santa’s helpers! Make the Evergreen Swizzle recipe below in advance; then chill it in festive small bottles that you can decorate to your Elvin heart’s content. This year stuff a few stockings with some real Holiday Cheer-io!



18 ounces gin

6 ounces Yellow Chartreuse

6 ounces Zirbenz (pine liqueur)

6 ounces strained fresh lime juice

18 ounces water



Combine the ingredients in a pitcher and stir well. Pour into 12 small bottles and chill for at least 4 hours, until very cold. Serve with small rosemary sprigs.
