Miller’s Tale: A Sidra Cocktail

With the goal of making a cocktail that highlights the sweet-tart flavor of Spanish sidra, A Rake’s Progress bar manager Morgan Stana considered two ingredients that pair naturally with apples: cranberry and ginger. I wanted a low-ABV and refreshing option, so I let the sidra be the key ingredient,” she says. (Tip: the cranberry-ginger syrup used in this cocktail also tastes great lengthened with soda and garnished with fresh rosemary as a booze-free holiday option.)


  • 4 oz. sidra
  • 1 oz. cranberry-ginger syrup
  • ¾ oz. white verjus (such as Noble or Kokomo, or fresh lemon juice)
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:snifter
  • Garnish:fresh cranberries


Combine all the ingredients in the glass and add ice. Stir to combine, then garnish.

Cranberry-Ginger Syrup:
2 oz. sugar
2 oz. fresh cranberries
8 oz. water
¼ bulb of ginger, peeled and sliced

Combine the ingredients in a saucepan and heat on medium high heat, stirring frequently, until all cranberries burst (about 15 minutes). Strain and let cool.
