Cranberry Whiskey Sour

by James Stevenson

I am currently obsessed with cranberries and am using them in all my drinks! Today I am posting a cranberry whiskey sour, which was initially an experiment that turned out awesome! The sour of the lemon and cranberries really highlight the spiciness of the whiskey. I also added some cranberry sauce to really get the party going. I actually thought I had purchased cranberry jam at the store but a second look revealed that it was cranberry sauce. The cranberry sauce added another dimension of sweet and cranberry flavor.
