This Mrs. Claus cocktail cranberry whiskey cocktail is filled with things that make me envision what Mrs. Claus would drink. This is her cocktail, like margaritas are my cocktail. It’s a sweet, tarty, spicy and very colorful! This easy Christmas cocktail is a blend of cranberry juice, whiskey, cinnamon sticks and more!
2 Ounces of Cranberry Juice
Cinnamon Sticks or 1/4 Teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 Ounces Whiskey or Bourbon
1 –2 Tablespoons of Rosemary Simple Syrup
- Break the cinnamon stick in half or add in 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to shaker. Fill shaker with cranberry juice, whiskey, rosemary simple syrup and ice.
- Shake for 30 seconds. Pour into glass. Serve with rosemary sprig and sugared cranberries. (Dip cranberries + rosemary sprigs into water and sprinkle with sugar. Let dry for a holiday sugared look!)
*Note: to make rosemary simple syrup, bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a simmer. Remove from heat and add in three 5-inch rosemary sprigs. Steep for 20 minutes and strain mixture into a jar.
