The perfect cocktail recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas, you name it! Complete with fresh made cranberry sauce.


Units Scale
  • 2 ounces bourbon (you can also use your favorite vodka or rum)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce 100% unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup homemade cranberry sauce, chilled
  • Ginger beer (I used about 4 ounces but you can use as much as you want!)
  • 6 sprigs fresh mint, plus extra for garnish
  • Orange slices, lime slices, fresh cranberries, for garnish


  1. Add 2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce, cranberry juice, mint leaves, orange juice, lime juice, and whiskey to a cocktail shaker. Muddle the mixture together before shaking (I smooshed mine up with a bar spoon).
  2. Shake mixture in the cocktail shaker and pour into 2-3 glasses over ice. Top with as much ginger beer as desired and remaining cranberry sauce. Garnish glasses with lime and orange slices, cranberries, and fresh mint. Serve chilled.
