The Bing Crosby

We've shared many simple concoctions here already. This is not one of them. It's the holiday season, and sometimes you need to bring out all the bells and tinsel to really get the party started.

Like its namesake, this cocktail is light on its feet but also quite innovative. (Did you know that The Crosby Research Foundation held numerous patents related to TV and radio recording, including for the invention of the laugh track?) 

But don't let its bright demeanor fool you. This drink packs a punch. After one or two of these, you might find yourself crooning "White Christmas" with all the gusto of Der Bingle himself.

INGREDIENTS:

2oz Bourbon

1oz Classic Grenadine

.75oz Ginger Liqueur 

.75oz Fresh Lime Juice

.25oz Pimento Dram

Dash of Orange Bitters

Shake all ingredients over ice and strain into a sugar-rimmed glass. Garnish with fresh cranberries and orange peel.

PRO TIP: When rimming a glass, use our Rich Simple Syrup instead of water to really make those fat sugar grains stick. Spin any excess sugar into the sink.
