This cranberry cinnamon whiskey sour is the perfect warming cocktail for the holiday season. Cranberry juice, bourbon, lemon and simple syrup poured over ice and cinnamon sticks for a holiday twist. Cheers!
Everyone needs a little bourbon warmth in November!
So I’m here with your 2022 Thanksgiving cocktail! Oh hello.
The cranberry cinnamon whiskey sour has entered the chat and I am… welcoming it. It’s tangy, tart, a little spicy and refreshing all at the same time. I swear it’s possible.
I probably say it in the summer too, but this is my favorite cocktail season. All the warming flavors, the spices, the cinnamon, the ciders, the apple and cranberry – I could go on and on. I can turn practically any traditional cocktail into a fall version and this is no exception. A cranberry cinnamon whiskey sour coming right up!
I love the idea of this cocktail for Thanksgiving. It’s soul warming, yet a bit refreshing. It’s tart but not overwhelmingly sweet. It pairs nicely with all the traditional Thanksgiving dishes!
This whiskey sour is also embarrassingly easy.
Simple shake together the bourbon, lemon juice, cranberry juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour over crushed ice and cinnamon sticks, where the cinnamon will impart a little spice as it sits and make the drink extra holiday-ish.
Throw in an orange peel and some sugared cranberries if you’re feeling fancy!
Making one of these to cozy up by the fire and watch a show or read a book sounds like my ultimate fall dream. (more…)
