This cocktail is simple, festive, and a crowd pleaser! You will need:
2 oz Fremont Mischief Straight Rye Whiskey
2 oz cranberry juice (take it up a notch and make your own fresh Cranberry Juice!)
1 oz simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, cooked until mixture is completely liquid)
1 oz lemon juice
3 Dashes of Fee’s Old Fashioned Aromatic bitters
Pinch of salt
Put all ingredients into a shaker (without ice first) and vigorously shake for 5 seconds
Add ice to shaker and shake for an additional 10 seconds. Strain into your favorite coupe or martini glass and garnish with a cranberry/thyme skewer. Sip, chill, and enjoy some Mischief!
Make your own Fresh Cranberry Juice!
Take 1 lb bag of cranberries, rinse them then place in sauce pan.
Add 2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Smush the berries with a masher, or pop in the blender (make sure they have cooled first, blenders don’t like hot things)
Will last a week or two. If it is too thick, you can add more water.
