Cranberry Orange Dark and Stormy Cocktails

  • For the cranberry-infused rum:
  • 2 cups cranberries
  • 1 bottle gold or black rum
  • For the cocktail:
  • 2 ounces cranberry-infused rum
  • 6 ounces ginger beer
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • cranberries and orange slices for garnish
  1. Using a toothpick, puncture each cranberry. Alternatively, you could slice them in half or crush them slightly.
  2. Place the cranberries and the rum in a large, clean mason jar. Tightly close the lid and store in a cool place for at least 24 hours and upwards of a week before using depending on intensity of cranberry flavor desired.
  3. For the cocktail, fill a high ball glass or two low ball glasses with ice. Pour the ginger beer over the ice. Top with the rum and the bitters. Stir to combine. Garnish and serve.
For a mocktail, substitute the cranberry-infused rum with 100% pure cranberry juice. You can keep or omit the dash of bitters as it suits you. Continue as directed and enjoy.
