Drink of the Week: Koval Cranberry Gin Liqueur

American distillers are increasingly contributing to the aperitif category, and this season, the cranberry gin liqueur from Koval Distillery is a standout. Building on the 13 ingredients that define the distillery’s flagship dry gin, this liqueur layers organic cane sugar and a cranberry concentrate from Michigan to create a bright and balanced blend that sings with the sweet-tart flavor of cranberries. Try it in a seasonal French 75 or mix it with sparkling wine for a simple holiday spritz. $33.99, caskers.com
