2 cups Fresh Cranberries

2 cups Water

2 cups Sugar

2 Cinnamon Sticks

¾ cup Bourbon or Whiskey

½ cup Lemon Juice

¼ cup Orange Juice

¼ cup Lime Juice

Ice cubes & cocktail shaker for mixing

In a medium-sized pot, add cranberries, water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Heat over a medium flame and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have burst open and can easily be stirred into the syrup, resulting in a smooth consistency.  Remove from heat. Fit a large bowl with a fine mesh strainer and strain the syrup, leaving all of the large chunks and skin from the cranberry behind. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.  When ready to make cocktails, add ¾ cup simple syrup (your cranberry concoction) to the whiskey/bourbon, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice, and a large handful of ice and pour into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Divide into four glasses and serve.
