Cranberry & Cinnamon Whiskey Sour: (4 servings)

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ¾ cup bourbon or whiskey
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ice cubes

In a medium-sized saucepan, add cranberries, water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Heat over a medium until boiling. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries have burst open and can easily be stirred into the syrup (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and strain into a large bowl leaving large chunks behind. Chill for at least 10 minutes before using.

Add ¾ simple syrup, whiskey, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice in an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake well for at least 30 seconds. Divide into 4 glasses and serve.
