We love a great Old Fashioned, but it is nice to occasionally mix it up with some seasonal additions. With Christmas coming up, we decided to embrace the Yuletide spirit and made a  Christmas version of this classic cocktail! Cranberries are a classic Christmas ingredient and we always make sugared cranberries for Christmas to use as decorative garnishes and a special treat. making the sugared cranberries leaves us with an awesome cranberry syrup that just begs to be used in a cocktail.

Christmas Old Fashioned - A Rye Cocktail with Cranberry Syrup

A great rye is essential to a good Old Fashioned, so we started out with Koval Single Barrel Rye, a delicious 100% rye distilled in Chicago that is perfect for sipping neat, but also makes for an excellent base spirit in an Old Fashioned. We really like the way the Koval Single Barrel Rye works in this drink, as it brings a warm hint of honey and maple syrup and peppery spice. The maple flavor works really well at Christmas.

Mixing in the sweet cranberry syrup, tangy orange and the warming spices of a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters, this cocktail stays true to its classic roots, but just gets a festive lift from the cranberry syrup.  Garnished with sugared cranberries, this drink will be sure to get your guests full of Christmas cheer!
