As a college student, a break is not necessary to necessitate drinking, but it is a good reason to keep drinking. Enjoy your Thanksgiving break with this classic cocktail of the season.
The old fashioned cranberry cocktail uses the fruit of the season and goes perfectly with all things Thanksgiving. This drink is definitely on the strong side so adjust the bourbon and club soda levels to your taste. Sit back and have a food, cocktail and tryptophan induced coma after stuffing your face and watching football.
