A Few Words

Cranberry cocktails get a bad name. I think it has to do with the popularity of the “Cranberry and Vodka” or the Cosmo. I wanted to come up with a nice complex cranberry cocktail so this is it. I think it turned out very well. The key is to use 100% pure cranberry juice (not Ocean Spray or brands like that). That way it has a nice bite without being too sweet and you get that pure cranberry flavor. The Demermara Syrup gives it a nice winter spice note while the Sherry and Apricot Liqueur gives it some complexity. Cheers!
