Servings 1


  • 1 oz unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 3 oz orange juice freshly squeezed is best
  • 2 oz whiskey
  • ½ oz Cointreau
  • ½ oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ oz simple syrup
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 oz ginger beer


  • Combine all ingredients (except ginger beer) in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and strain into a chilled glass.
  • Top it off with ginger beer and garnish with orange peel and fresh thyme (if you like).


Making your own simple syrup is a breeze! We always have some on hand. Just simmer equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan, stir until the sugar dissolves, then remove from heat and let it cool. For a small batch, try ½ cup of sugar and ½ cup of water. Keep it in the refrigerator for whenever you need it. Cheers! 🥂
