Confessions of a Mixologist: Cranberry Cowboy
Giddy up, cowboy! This cocktail is reminiscent of Bartender Zack's time camping in Fountain, Colorado. The High West adds the perfect amount of campfire smoke, and blends flawlessly with the cinnamon and cranberry flavors. Suggested pairing: a plate full of gooey s'mores.
- 2.5 oz High West Campfire Whiskey
- .5 oz Cinnamon Syrup
- 1 oz Cranberry Juice
- 2 dashes Cranberry Bitters
Shake ingredients and pour over ice in a highball. Top with soda.
