Pumpkin spice? Bah! Don’t get me wrong, I do like pumpkin desserts but when it comes to cocktails I want to enjoy, pumpkin is not on the list. Know what is? This Cranberry Orange Whiskey Sour Cocktail.
Whiskey Sours have been around a long time, but this is a new variation I recently discovered. And loved it!
Easy to make. The cranberry make it feel like a fall cocktail while the orange juice still says summer.
The version I enjoyed did not use egg white, although many versions do say to use it. It creates a foam on the top of the cocktail.

My cocktail was fantastic without the added work of foaming an egg white. But if you want to really up the presentation for a special event, I say go for it.
Cranberry Orange Whiskey Sour Cocktail Ingredients
For me, simple is always best but when it comes to this cocktail, it is worth making it from scratch versus using a premade sour mix. In a pinch, if you’re short on time, use the premade mix.
2 ounces Whiskey. I used Crown Royale, but you can use any type you prefer or even bourbon if that is what you drink.
1 ounce orange juice. Fresh squeezed is best.
3/4 ounce unsweetened cranberry juice.
3/4 ounce maple syrup or simple syrup. I really loved the taste with the maple syrup.
1/2 ounce lemon juice. Again fresh squeezed is best.
Cranberry Orange Whiskey Sour Cocktail Directions
Add all ingredients above into a shaker cup with ice. Shake. Shake. Shake!
Pour into a glass and garnish with an orange slice. Add a few cranberries to the glass for a pop of fun color.
That’s it! Easy right?
To me, it does not make sense to overcomplicate things. Easier, the better.
If you want to add the egg white foam, you literally do everything the same EXCEPT no ice in the shaker cup. You first shake all ingredients together without ice, then add ice afterward.
What this does is allow the foam to rise to the top of the cocktail. And there you have it. A fall/summer twist for a favorite cocktail. Salute!
