Drink/Delicate

| Everything Else

Oh, the weather outside is…weather. And, since we’d have to brave the wind + snow to go find ourselves one of those oh-so-delightful fireplaces we’ve heard so much about, we’re going to have to take matters into our own hands and get a little cozy warmth from somewhere else. First, we’ll get a batch of cranberry-cinnamon simple syrup bubbling on the stove top (it’ll make the apartment smell amazingly festive). Then, we’ll concoct a perfectly sweet-tart whiskey cocktail (which will warm the heart going down). And lastly, we’ll slip into the Samantha Chang All Lace Halter Bra and All Lace Brief (who needs a roaring fire when the laces are this hot?). Since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Cranberry & Cinnamon Whiskey Sour

2 cups fresh cranberries
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 cinnamon sticks Coupons
3/4 cup bourbon or whiskey
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lime juice
Ice cubes & cocktail shaker for mixing

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan add cranberries, water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have burst open and can easily be stirred into the syrup, resulting in a smooth consistency. This will take about 10 minutes. Once done, remove syrup from heat. Fit a large bowl with a fine mesh strainer and strain the simple syrup, leaving all of the large chunks and skin behind. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before using.
  2. When ready to make your cocktails, add 3/4 cup simple syrup, whiskey, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice, and a large handful of ice to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Divide into 4 glasses and serve at once.
