Cranberry Cognac Sour

 

Once more with Cranberry

The very last of our cranberry syrup (created for last week’s cocktail, the delicious Cranberry Collins). The challenge this week was to do something completely different with it… and this cocktail is the result!

 

Cranberry Cognac Sour

 

A simple name for a simple take on a Whiskey Sour.

Switch the whiskey for brandy and swap the simple syrup for our homemade cranberry syrup and you’re there! A delicious cocktail that is unbelievably good and dangerously drinkable.

I don’t recommend you make too many of these… you might just drink them all!
