Ingredients

Orange Cranberry Bourbon

  • 6 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Peel of 1 orange
  • 12 ounces bourbon

Florida Bourbon Fizz

  • 3 mint leaves
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 3 orange wedges
  • 4 cranberries from Orange Cranberry Bourbon jar
  • 2 ounces Orange Cranberry Bourbon
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Moscato di Asti or Prosecco

Instructions

Orange Cranberry Bourbon

  • Combine cranberries, sugar, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until cranberries start to burst and the mixture resembles a chunky simple syrup..
  • Remove from heat and cool 30 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the peel from an orange, removing as much of the pith (the spongy white membrane) as possible. (It's OK to leave a little, as bourbon cocktails generally call for bitters; this one does not, so a little bitterness won't hurt!)
  • Add the bursting cranberry simple syrup and the orange peel to a 16 ounce mason jar. Fill jar to the top with bourbon, stir, and close.
  • Set the jar in a cool, dark place for at least 3 days to marinate before using. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor gets!

Florida Bourbon Fizz

  • In a low ball glass, add mint leaves. Using your Arctic Chill muddler, press down and twist 3-4 times.
  • Add the lime and orange wedges, and soaked cranberries, and repeat, muddling the fruit with a gentle twisting motion.
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine Orange Cranberry Bourbon, cranberry juice, and fresh orange juice.
  • Add desired amount of ice cubes to glass, then pour bourbon mixture over ice.
  • Fill glass to top with Moscato di Asti, Prosecco, or your favorite sparkling wine.
  • Garnish with orange and lime wedges and cranberries on a drink skewer, and enjoy!
