Cranberry Old Fashioned

Recipe by Quanto Basto

A cranberry Old Fashion shines a light on spicy and fruity seasonal flavours and offers a fresh twist on the classic recipe. When choosing your perfect cocktail glass, the options aren't complicated. Here, we focus on a double old fashioned glass (also known as a rocks or lowball glass) and a highball, which is almost identical to a Collins glass, just a touch shorter. When stocking your home bar, most bartenders will concur that you can make 90% of drinks in a double old fashioned or highball, along with a good all-purpose cocktail glass. Whether you're looking for diversion or a little liquid courage, these mixed drinks may do the trick.


  • 2 ounces Bourbon

  • ½ ounce spiced cranberry syrup

  • 1 dash orange bitters

  • Fresh cranberries, for garnish

  • Orange bitters, for garnish

For the Spiced Cranberry Syrup:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 4 whole star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks


  • Combine the bourbon, spiced cranberry syrup, bitters, and ice in a glass and stir to combine. Garnish with fresh cranberries and orange bitters.

Spiced Cranberry Syrup:

  • Combine water, sugar, and cranberries in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes or until sugar is fully dissolved and the cranberries have popped and softened.

  • Pour the mixture through a strainer. Transfer the syrup into glass containers and allow to cool before serving.
