Cranberry Citrus Cocktail

Despite having a fairly respectable whiskey selection on hand, I don't have an extensive selection of the liqueurs and other ingredients used for cocktails. That's slowly changing but when we went looking for simple cocktail ideas for the holidays, the search was based on what was on hand. I came across this Cranberry Citrus Cocktail on the Bourbon Review website. The listing for Amaro Montenegro caught my eye since I happen to have a bottle of that in the pantry. Four Roses Single Barrel also happens to be one of my favorite cocktail bourbons. Since Colleen was already buying fresh cranberries for some holiday cooking projects, the recipe fit the bill perfectly. We even had fresh rosemary on hand. It was destined to be! 

Colleen prepared a cranberry simple syrup and we were all set. Did I mention we use Four Roses Single Barrel frequently? Yeah, and I had used it all up recently, and had not yet replenished. No problem, I grabbed the bottle of John J. Bowman Single Barrel instead.

The drink was refreshing and flavorful. The bourbon flavor was somewhat muted by the citrus juice but was quite enjoyable. This one I added to my file of cocktails to make again.
