There's nothing better to me than a festive Holiday cocktail. With the Holiday season in full swing that means there's no shortage of cranberries. Take advantage of them by making this delicious cocktail! I like to make a large batch of the simple syrup and have it in my refrigerator at all times... just in case. Cheers!
|For simple syrup:|
|Sugar||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Water||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Fresh cranberries||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Simple syrup||1/2 Ounce ((cranberry))|
1.The first thing you want to do is make your simple syrup.
2.In a small pan over medium high heat add the sugar, water, cranberries, and cinnamon stick. Let it come to a simmer and cook about 10 minutes, or until all of the cranberries start to pop.
3.Once the cranberries have popped turn off the heat and let it cool completely.
4.In a shaker with ice add the simple syrup, bitters, orange, and Bourbon of choice.
5.Shake vigorously until chilled and strain into a glass with an ice sphere.
6.Garnish with an orange zest and cranberry.
7.Serve and enjoy.Cheers!
