"We drink this year-round but invented it over the holidays, when we had mounds of homemade cranberry sauce in the fridge. It evolved from a Champagne and fresh berry compote drink that we saw being made at Portland's Clyde Common. We subbed bourbon and experimented until we arrived at this delicious mix."

  1. Muddle the crushed ice and cranberry sauce in a rocks glass until the ice has been tinged red. Pour in the whiskey, orange liqueur, bitters, and water. Stir and serve.


  • To make the cranberry sauce
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Stir a 12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries together with 1 1/2 cups of white sugar, 1/2 cup of brandy, and 4 1/2 teaspoons of orange zest in a shallow baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until the berries are soft and the liquid has evaporated, about 1 hour. Allow the berries to cool completely before using in the cocktail above. Store the cranberries covered in the refrigerator.
