My daughter took a course in Saint Petersburg this summer. Knowing her parents all too well, she brought us back a bottle of local spirits.
It tastes like a potent cranberry liqueur which makes it perfect for tempering with some sweet mixers. Thus a Cranberry Cobbler Cocktail is born. Hints of fruit and the dusting of nutmeg give it the warm feel of the classic autumn dessert.

Sure! Sounds like a plan to rock into our Friday with drinks in hand.
