Happy Friday! Hope you have a fun weekend planned. I will be in Las Vegas. Yep. I might just talk a bartender into making my favorite new cocktail, this Cranberry Bourbon Martini.

How festive would this be for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve?

I use real unsweetened cranberry juice in this cocktail.

Sweetened it with Bourbon Maple Syrup.

Float some fresh cranberries on the top. Do it.

This drink is a bit tart. And perfectly sweet at the same time. It’s exactly what you need when sitting by the fire in Montana.

Maker’s Mark has become a favorite here.

I love the the sensation of chilly days & sipping warming bourbon.
