Have you seen all the different flavors of alcohol on the market?   There are so many different choices out there and if you are like us, we are constantly looking to try something new and serve something new. We love entertaining around the holidays and we wish to serve our guests something different, something they have never tried before or something that will stand out in a crowd. So how about a Sparkling Cranberry Bourbon Chiller with all the flavors of the season?


I’ve always associated bourbon with a fire in the fireplace, you know sipping on two fingers of straight bourbon next to a roaring fire and looking out over snow-covered fields.   Such a cozy warm feeling, legs extending to the fire, toes all warm and that little sip that spreads warmth all the way down to your tummy.  Oh yes!

But since we wished for something a little more Christmasy we decided to add a little cranberry juice to bourbon.   And we added a little bubbly soda to make a refreshing Cranberry Cocktail.   And of course it never hurts to add a few fresh cranberries to make it pleasing to the eye.

Oh my I like this. It reminds me of an old time cherry bounce, infusing alcohol with fruit. Thank you for sharing, Evelyn. Hope you had a nice Christmas.
