Cranberry Culprit

If an Amaretto Sour is considered dangerous for the ease with which it’s imbibed, consider this cocktail truly formidable. Amaretto, Maker’s Mark, and ginger ale combine to improve on overly sweet sour mix, and mashed-up cranberry sauce is added for a new twist on leftovers.

This recipe was featured as part of our Thanksgiving Leftovers photo gallery.
