Ingredients

  • Cranberry & Cinnamon Whiskey Sour – Baker by Nature
  • Makes 4 cocktails
  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3/4 cup bourbon or whiskey
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • Ice cubes & cocktail shaker for mixing

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan add cranberries, water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have burst open and can easily be stirred into the syrup, resulting in a smooth consistency. This will take about 10 minutes. Once done, remove syrup from heat. Fit a large bowl with a fine mesh strainer and strain the simple syrup, leaving all of the large chunks and skin behind. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before using.
  2. When ready to make your cocktails, add 3/4 cup simple syrup, whiskey, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice, and a large handful of ice to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Divide into 4 glasses and serve at once.
