Cranberry Bog cocktail on a bar


This delicious recipe features a beautiful cranberry color and a candied cranberry garnish, which is sure to impress. As a bonus, this cocktail also works great as a party punch. Below, you’ll find recipes for both a single cocktail and for a party of 12.



Ingredients - Yields 1 Cocktail:

  • 1.5 oz. Rum 44
  • 1 oz. Unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 3/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 3 dashes of Floyd Wild Plum Bitters
  • Fever Tree Tonic

Ingredients - Yields 12 Cocktails:

  • 18 oz. Rum 44
  • 12 oz. unsweetened cranberry
  • 9 oz. simple syrup
  • 6 oz. lime juice
  • 36 dashes of Floyd Wild Plum Bitters
  • Fever Tree Tonic


  1. To make a single cocktail, shake all ingredients (except the tonic) with ice.
  2. Strain into a stemless glass with fresh ice.
  3. Top with the Fever Tree Tonic, and garnish with a candied cranberry (cranberry rolled in sugar), a dried orange wheel, and fresh mint. For a beautiful presentation, leave enough room in your glass so that the candied cranberry does not sit in the cocktail.
  1. To make a party punch, add all ingredients (except the tonic) in a punch bowl and stir well to combine.
  2. When serving individual glasses, serve over ice and then top each glass with Fever Tree Tonic to allow for full effervescence.


How To Make Candied Cranberries:
When making your simple syrup, add a handful of whole cranberries into the saucepan. Let them simmer for 3 -5 minutes on low heat, then cool the cranberries for one hour on parchment paper. Once they have cooled, toss them in granulated sugar.
