Cranberry Old Fashioneds, Perfect For Pre Dinner Thanksgiving Cocktails


While the fire is roaring and the smell of turkey fills the air, get your party started with Cranberry Old Fashioneds – a delicious twist to traditional Thanksgiving cocktails and a true crowd pleaser!  This holiday classic pairs well with a simple appetizer like deviled eggs or baked brie.


8 frozen or fresh cranberries

2 teaspoons of sugar

2 dashes of Angostura bitters

2 inches (1 strip) orange zest

1 tablespoon of water

2 ounces of bourbon


Muddle the cranberries, sugar, bitters and orange zest with water in a cocktail glass until the sugar completely dissolves. Add the ice cubes and bourbon. If the cocktail is too strong, gently add more water. Garnish with a lime or a sprig of rosemary.

These Thanksgiving cocktails are best made individually but can be made as a communal punch with cranberry juice. Increase your ingredients, taste as you go and be careful when you add the bitters. Enjoy!
