Typically this cocktail starts to make an appearance around Thanksgiving time for us. We are putting our Holiday movie list together and there it is, that movie that we will eternally debate whether it is really a Christmas movie or not- Die Hard.
This fantastic cocktail was created by Brent and includes not one, but TWO of our products, 7 Syrup and Orange Ginger Cranberry shrub (available Oct-Jan). The combination of the bourbon, red wine, and these two products creates Christmas in a cup. Beautiful red color, AMAZING deep flavors, and all without bloodshed. #yipeekiyamotherfucker
Elijah Craig is our bourbon of choice for this cocktail. The vanilla and oak of this small batch bourbon from Heaven Hill don’t compete with the red wine and baking spice goin on in the cocktail.
1.5 oz Elijah Craig bourbon
1 oz red wine
1 oz cran shrub
0.5 oz 7 syrup
Squirt of lemon juice
Dash of orange bitters
Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake until very cold. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with an orange peel.
