Hey hey!  Anyone looking for a simple cocktail for holiday entertaining this year?

I’ve gotcha covered.  😘

This Cranberry Bourbon Fizz literally takes less than a minute to make, it calls for just three simple ingredients (yep, ginger beer is the mystery “fizz”), and it’s totally fizzy and fun and festive!  Feel free to sprinkle a few extra cranberries on touch for those wintery holiday vibes, or hey, an extra sprig of rosemary or a cinnamon stick or an orange peel would be fabulous if you feel like going crazy and making this a four ingredient cocktail.  (Look out, world.)

We’ve been making these with our brand new bottle of (now imported!) bourbon, some extra-spicy ginger beer, and jugo de arándanos (ha, that was a new vocab word, for sure) this week here in Spain.  And they hit the spot every time.

Here’s how to make ’em!

These 3-Ingredient Cranberry Bourbon Fizz cocktails are super quick and easy to make, and the ginger beer gives then an extra fizzy, spicy kick. They're the perfect simple drink for holiday entertaining (perfect especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas)!

Begin with your favorite kind of bourbon.  (We tracked down some Bulleit at a liquor store here.  And as Barclay noted, even the import stickers here in Spain are beautiful!)  Stir it together in a serving glass with some cranberry juice. (100% juice is essential here to get that strong, tart flavor).  Fill the glass with ice.  Then top it all off with some ginger beer to get that good “fizz”.

And…there you have it!

So simple, and so good.  Cheers, friends!
