Cranberry Orange Cocktail

Hello everyone – cheers to Friday!

And this luscious cocktail is perfect way to celebrate Friday (And the upcoming holiday season!)

It’s been the year of boozy drinks here on Havoc In The Kitchen. 14 cocktails so far this year. Plus this Homemade Pumpkin Cream Liqueur. And if you think I am going to stop, please think again. Besides this cocktail, I have already prepared for your another 4 festive ideas. So without further ado, let’s enjoy this Cranberry Orange Cocktail.

Cranberry Orange Cocktail

The cocktail is so simple yet elegant and delicious. It features whiskey, orange liquor, and cranberry juice. You can use other hard spirits such as vodka, rum, or gin. Also, you can add a few drops of orange bitter for a more complex flavour. I have tried it with and without orange bitters, and the bitter adds something extra special. As always, I am giving you just an idea which you should adjust to your preferences. For instance, this version is relatively light and refreshing, but you can make it stronger.

I hope you like this Cranberry Orange Cocktail, and you will give a try soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me anĀ InstagramĀ message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
