Cranberry Whiskey Sour

Oh gosh, this cocktail couldn’t be easier. Just 4 easy ingredients and you have a tasty, seasonal cocktail. It’s so pretty, too!

If you are looking for warm and festive cocktails try our Crockpot Mulled Wine or Whiskey Pom Cocktail …both are perfect!

In fact, sub out the cranberry juice for apple cider, orange juice, or just about any juice and you’ll have a different but still delicious cocktail!

Last week, in fact, I created this drink with Apple Cider and lemon juice instead of Cranberry and Lime Juice and it was soooo good!

Do you have to use Ginger Ale?

No, not all. Any clear carbonated beverage works great. Club Soda, Sprite, or ginger ale will do nicely.

This cocktail is too sour!

This is a sour, sour cocktail. The combo of lime juice and cranberry juice, both of which are already quite tart, can be too much for some. Go head and add simple syrup to cut down the tartness. Even a shot of orange juice can be really nice!
