Cranberry Old Fashioned

Recipe makes one cocktail.


  • 2 ounces Bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce Spiced Cranberry Syrup

For the simple syrup: 

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


  • To make the spiced cranberry syrup add all the cranberry syrup ingredients into a small pot with 2 cups of water and bring to a simmer, then cook for ten minutes to infuse. Let cool, then, using a fine-mesh strainer, strain the syrup and set aside. Use as needed.
