Cranberry Orange Dark and Stormy Cocktails

Serves 5

Ingredients

For the cranberry-infused rum:

  • 2 cups cranberries
  • 1 bottle Veleiro Anejo

 For the cocktail:

  • 2 ounces cranberry-infused rum
  • 6 ounces ginger beer
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • cranberries and orange slices for garnish

Mixology

  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.
