Why You Will Love This Recipe
The Cranberry Bog Cocktail is named after the cranberry bogs where cranberries are grown and harvested.
The combination of tart cranberry juice and orange juice creates a balanced and refreshing flavor profile, while the amaretto rounds out the taste.
It’s a great option for those who enjoy cocktails with a slightly sour or tangy taste while still being sweet.
This cranberry cocktail recipe has a surprising ingredient – amaretto! The nuttiness is not obvious but adds an amazing depth and structure to the drink for the cranberry to shine.
This fall cocktail is best when shaken and therefore better to be made soon before consuming rather than far in advance.
Cranberry Juice – I like to use Cran-Raspberry but any variation you like will be great
Amaretto – the surprise ingredient! It is not strong but adds great depth and structure to the drink
This cranberry drink tastes best when it has been shaken. It makes a big difference!
This also means that while you can make it in advance, it tastes best when consumed shortyl after shaking.
This cranberry cocktail recipe is perfect with vodka! Vodka is a plain flavor that will highlight the cranberry.
