Cranberry Sour Bourbon Cocktail

Making great bourbon cocktails at home is super simple! Just like making cranberry simple syrup! Say hello to this festive bourbon cranberry sour!

This cocktail can be made as a single, or in a big batch! Feel free to leave out the egg white! We love cranberry season, and grab a few extra bags to keep in the freezer. We make our own cranberry syrup, which is so easy! So, let the festivities begin!

And speaking of bourbon….
