Twelve Days of Christmas: Cranberries Galore

A quarter will buy you this glassware at a garage sale

We’re not sure what the shelf life is on cranberry sauce, but it seems like by the time we finish off our batch from Thanksgiving we’re wanting to make another batch for Christmas. The drink above (The Cranberry Cocktail) was inspired by “The Cocktail” featured over at Annashortcakes. Thanks for another great cocktail idea Anna!

Here are two great reasons to make more cranberry sauce.

The Cranberry Cocktail

  • 1.5 oz rye whiskey
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cranberry sauce

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a cordial or martini glass.

  • 1/2 oz creme de cocoa
  • 1/2 oz Chambord

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
