Crantopia Martini

Description

Author of 101 Martinis (Wiley Hard-cover, $15.95) Kim Haasarud created this cocktail extemporaneously at a Thanksgiving family gathering, inspired by the cranberry relish on the menu. She suggests adjusting the amount of simple syrup, depending on how sweet or sour the cranberry relish is.
