A cranberry bourbon cocktail is great on any occasion. Even bourbon cranberry sauce is good, but enough with all of that. Let us make this cranberry bourbon spritzer recipe.
Bourbon Cranberry Sauce Is Actually Good
Throughout my entire life cranberry sauce has been a part of my life. Granted, the only time I ate cranberry sauce was doing Thanksgiving, but I ate it nonetheless.
Furthermore, I thought everybody liked cranberry sauce. At the very least I thought that most people could tolerate it, but apparently, that is not the case.
This year, I discovered that a lot of people do not like cranberry sauce, even people that I know in real life do not fool with it. I was shocked that they were just now telling me this.
On contrary with what I said earlier, I may eat cranberry sauce, but I am not the biggest fan of it. To further elaborate, cranberry sauce is alright by itself, but it is great with dressing.
With that being said, I am strictly talking about normal cranberry sauce. Bourbon cranberry sauce on the other hand is another story. This sauce is great, and I probably should add this to next year’s Thanksgiving menu.
In fact, this is a great way to get a little more flavor into your Thanksgiving dinner.
Add some Bourbon cranberry sauce to your turkey, or ham, or even just put it on the table for people to use as they like.
Also, the cranberry bourbon spritzer recipe was inspired by this sauce. It makes a great cranberry bourbon cocktail.
Do Whiskey And Cranberry Go Together?
Cranberry and whiskey absolutely go together. This combination is why you can have Bourbon cranberry sauce.
Also, this is why I can create the cranberry bourbon spritzer recipe, and make an amazing cranberry bourbon cocktail.
What Drinks Mix Well With Bourbon?
Minus the cranberry, bourbon mix well with a lot of drink ingredients. Here are a few things that you can mix your bourbon with.
- Dark Soda
- Club Soda
- Ginger Beer (Got to love a good ginger beverage)
- Eggnog (Perfect for the holidays)
- Hot Chocolate
- Orange Juice (Any fruit juice is great to use)
- A Cinnamon Beverage
I could talk about how good bourbon is, but that does not do my love for whiskey any justice. Furthermore, Whiskey as a whole is great for sipping and relaxing.
Is A Lemon Lime Soda A Good Mixer For Bourbon?
Lemon lime soda is great for bourbon. The lemon-lime flavor combined with the carbonation from the lemon-lime soda brings a fruity taste that goes well with bourbon.
Serving Size: 1
- 1.5 oz Bourbon Whiskey
- 1/2 oz Cinnamon Simple Syrup
- 2 oz Cranberry Juice
- 2 oz Club Soda
- 1 cup Ice
- Double Old-Fashioned Glass
- Cocktail Stirrer
Place all the ingredients except for the club soda in your cocktail stirrer. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to NOT put club soda in your drink as of right now.
I admit I was never the smartest person in my science class, but one time I place a carbonated drink into a shaker, and when I got to shaking, the shaker exploded, making a mess everywhere.
This makes sense since shaking a carbonated drink is never a good thing.
Once the bourbon whiskey, cinnamon simple syrup, cranberry juice, and ice are mixed, pour the mixture into a cup, then add the club soda. Now, you can enjoy your drink.
