Cranberry and Cinnamon Whiskey Sour

Total Time Required: 30 minutes
Makes 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


To create the cranberry simple syrup, combine the cranberries, water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks in a medium-sized pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries burst and become a smooth consistency. This will take about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Place a fine mesh strainer in a large bowl and strain the simple syrup, leaving the behind chunks and skin. Let it cool for at least 10 minutes.

Once the simple syrup is cooled and you’re ready to make your cocktails, combine ¾ cup simple syrup, whiskey/bourbon, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Divide into 4 glasses and serve immediately.
