With the cold winter months upon us, we approached our friends at Van Brunt Stillhouse to craft a seasonal cocktail ideal for intimate evenings at home with family and friends. Cozy up fireside with this tangy and crisp whiskey cocktail, served down on ice with a cranberry garnish.
— 2 ounces Van Brunt Stillhouse American Whiskey
— 1 part apple cider vinegar
— 1 part sugar
— 2 parts cranberries
Bring a pot of water to a boil and soak the cranberries for ten minutes until softened. Drain water and crush berries, then mix in apple cider vinegar and sugar. Let shrub sit for several days before using.
Shake and serve down on ice with both fresh and shrub cranberries as garnish.
