Cranberry Bourbon Sour

Y’all may know that Bruce loves bourbon, neat. But I love fancy non bourbon cocktails. That being the case, he had been telling me that not only was I missing out, but so were our readers.

It was TIME for a bourbon cocktail to debut on our page!

Enter, the Cranberry Bourbon Sour. Meanwhile, I can’t even tell you in the history of my life if I ever had a bourbon or whiskey sour. Therefore, I didn’t have anything to base it on.

Bourbon cocktails were not something that I thought I would enjoy. No matter how fancy I made them. Obviously, I was I wrong. As a result, this cranberry bourbon sour cocktail changed my point of view!Β
