We all know the holidays can be overwhelming with cooking, entertaining and so much more! Delicious cocktails make the holidays so much easier. I have mixed up the perfect J.R. Revelry Bourbon cocktail to pair with your turkey dinner. You will definitely be thankful you had this recipe on hand! 

Ingredients (makes 1 cocktail): 

  • 1 ounce of J.R. Revelry Bourbon
  • 3 ounces cranberry juice
  • Juice from 1 clementine 
  • 10 fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 ounces cranberry simple syrup


  1. Make Cranberry Simple Syrup: Boil 2 cups of water and sugar with 1/2 cup of cranberries until the cranberries pop. After they pop boil for 4-5 more minutes. Remove from the heat and mash the cranberries. Strain into a jar. 
  2. Add cranberries  and clementine juice to a shaker and muddle. 
  3. Add ice, bourbon, cranberry simple syrup and cranberry juice.
  4. Shake for 15-20 seconds.
  5. Strain over ice and garnish with a slice of clementine.
