Can it be true… something that’s healthy and naughty all in the same glass?
Healthy doesn’t have to be dull and boring. It can be naughty and nice – just like this New Year kick-starter of a cocktail from those pound-shavers at Weightwatchers. They gave us this totally sexy little number in a glass which is perfect after all the indulgence over the festive period… and only 109 calories per cocktail. Magic! Please remember to enjoy responsibly
- 75g frozen cranberries
- 35g granulated sugar
- Orange peel
- 125ml water
- 3 thyme sprigs
- 100ml gin
- 200ml slimline tonic water
Put the cranberries, sugar and orange peel in a small pan set over a low heat. Cover with the water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes then add the thyme sprigs and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, cover and set aside for 20 minutes to infuse. Strain through a sieve and leave to cool completely.
To serve, add the gin and tonic to the syrup and divide four chilled coupe glasses. Add ice cubes, stir and serve garnished with a sprig of fresh thyme.
