CRANBERRY ORANGE WHISKEY COCKTAIL

As the saying goes "What whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for." This drink proves that to be true, well... it will cure your desire for a delicious drink! Most of us aren't usually whiskey girls, but this cocktail may make us change our minds!

If you're like us and normally don't care for whiskey, don't be turned away! We promise you want to try this one! It is delightful!! This recipe from Crowded Kitchen is a new favorite! Orange and Cranberry are the perfect winter flavors, great for this time of year! We're done with all things pumpkin but not ready for peppermint and Christmas themed drinks.

This festive looking drink is perfect for any occasion but is especially perfect this cold time of year. It has all of the flavors you want; tart, sweet and a little bit of spice. The lemon juice adds just enough bitter flavor to balance the sweetness from the cranberry and orange.

The mix of sweet and bitter from the juice combined with the burn that Whiskey is known to give is truly delightful! It is hard to explain just how good it is, so we suggest you give this one a try and let us know what you think!
