If you need a cocktail that tastes like the holidays this beverage is for you. Just a few ingredients and you have a festive cocktail to share during your gatherings. I hosted a small party last year and every one was asked to bring their favorite cocktail to share. I made these Ginger Spiced Cranberry Bourbon cocktails and they were definitely a hit!
- 1.5 oz Brown Sugar Bourbon (BSB)
- 1 oz Cranberry Juice
- 2-3 oz Ginger Beer
- 4-5 dashes Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Cocktail Shaker
- Optional Cinnamon Stick and Cranberries for garnish
Brown Sugar Bourbon is a MUST in this cocktail. The sweet flavor is what makes the cocktail. I have made this with standard bourbon/whiskey and it’s just not the same. Good news, the BSB is inexpensive and very easy to find! This isn’t the kind of beverage that requires you to use the good stuff. And I’m here for it!
In a cocktail shaker combine BSB, Cranberry Juice, and 3-4 dashes of Pumpkin Pie Spice. Shake well so the spices are incorporated. Fill a high ball glass with a large ice cube. Pour shaker contents over ice. Top off the beverage with Ginger Beer and garnish with a Cinnamon Stick, a dash of PP spice, and a few fresh cranberries. Enjoy!
