Spiced Cranberry & Bourbon Fizz

 

I love this time of year. The holidays have always felt magical to me. Whenever I think of Thanksgiving I immediately think of cranberry. My favorite Thanksgiving food is those canned cranberry slices, which I know is pretty odd. It’s probably the only dish on the table that involves no cooking or prep whatsoever, but they’re just so damn good!
So when coming up with a Thanksgiving cocktail I knew I wanted to work in the taste of crisp cranberries that are both sweet and tart. This recipe calls for a spiced cranberry simple syrup which is super easy to pre-batch and can be saved for later use! Pre-batching cocktails is always a great idea for easy holiday entertaining too.

 

For the syrup you’ll need:

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole cranberries
2 tbsp whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
pinch of nutmeg

Bring the water and sugar to a boil. Once the sugar has dissolved add in the cranberries and spices. Boil for 1 minute then remove from heat and let this steep for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture into a glass jar (for later storage) and cool before use.

 

Now it’s time for the cocktail! You’ll need:

2 oz bourbon
1 oz cranberry clove simple syrup
Club soda

Combine bourbon and simple syrup over ice and top with club soda. Stir and top with cranberries and a star anise. Enjoy!

  • Home. 🖤
  • Chances are you have a friend who owns their own business. Whether it be a brick and mortar shop, a medical practice, or a freelance hustle - support the people you care about! Hire them, pay their actual rate, refer them. And if you can’t do any of that then like and comment on their social media posts to help with the algorithm. Shopping and supporting local doesn’t have to happen one day a year.
  • Being kind and respectful towards yourself in failure leads to new experiences and opportunities. After all, it’s how we all learned to walk. Falling down and getting back up over and over again.
