A New Thanksgiving Tradition November 16 2015, 0 Comments

Our friends at Bull in China—a Portland-based cocktail supply company specializing in locally made, and otherwise innovative barwares—had a bit of fun with our seasonal Spiced Cranberry Jam. Inspired by the flavors of the holidays, they created this crazy-delicious drink. Have a tray full of these lovelies at the ready for when the doorbell rings, and the hungering masses will discover the most elusive of all virtues: patience. Or, sip one while the turkey finishes roasting—even before your guest show up—and we at least promise that your family will drive you 75% less crazy this Thanksgiving.  

New Tradition
created by Daniel Osborne of Bull in China
1 teaspoon Spiced Cranberry Jam
1 oz. Old Tom gin (we like Ransom, because we love all things Oregon)
1/2 oz. cream sherry
1/2 oz. orange curacao 
1/2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz. grade B maple syrup

How-to: Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard for 30 seconds. Strain into a glass over ice (or a big ice cube). Garnish with a spring of rosemary and drink up!
