Cranberry Shrub Cocktail


1 cup Fresh or Frozen Cranberries

1 cup Sugar

1 Rosemary Sprig

1 tsp Black Peppercorns


2 oz Bourbon

1 oz Cranberry Shrub

2-3 drops Bitters

1 oz Club Soda

  1. To make the shrub: Add the cranberries, vinegar, sugar, dipper, rosemary, and black peppercorn in a 2 quart sauce pan.

  2. Bring the cranberry mixture to a boil over medium high heat, stirring the mixture so the sugar dissolves.

  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat and cool completely.

  5. Using a mesh strainer, strain the mixture into a glass jar.

  6. Discard the cinnamon stick and rosemary.

  7. You may like to reserve the cooked cranberries in a separate container to add them to the cocktail for a garnish. Otherwise, use fresh cranberries for garnishing.

  8. For the Cocktail: In a shaker with ice combine bourbon, shrub and bitters. Shake until well chilled. Strain into a cold glass, top with soda and garnish with cranberries.
