Just in time for the holidays, Food Network favorite Ina Garten has penned her eighth cookbook, entitled “Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust.” She will be doing a signing Tuesday night at Barnes & Noble Union Square at 33 East 17th St., at 7 p.m. In advance of that, Garten shared a recipe, a variation of a beloved cocktail from Dukes Bar in London.

4 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
4 oz. Cointreau liqueur
7 oz. cranberry-juice cocktail, such as Ocean Spray
7 oz. good vodka, such as Grey Goose
Dash of raw egg white (optional)

In a pitcher, stir together the lemon juice, Cointreau, cranberry-juice cocktail, vodka and egg white (if using). Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice and pour enough of the drink mixture into the shaker to almost fill it. Shake the cocktail for a full 30 seconds (it’s longer than you think!) and strain into martini glasses. Serve ice cold.
