Even the lightweights will love the smooth refreshing flavor of this cranberry whiskey cocktail recipe. The warm, oaky flavor of whiskey combined with amaretto liqueur, cranberry juice and ginger ale will soon become your go-to cocktail all winter long.

We used Maker’s Mark whiskey in this recipe for its effortless, aged-to-perfection flavor, but feel free to substitute the Maker’s for your favorite brand of whiskey. Simply combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, give it a good rattle then serve the mixture to your best pals.
