Squid Mixes: Cranberry Squidcar

The Cranberry Squidcar is my latest invention:

1.5 oz cognac
0.75 oz Cointreau
0.75 oz lemon juice
3 dashes cranberry bitters

Shake with ice and strain.

I used the sidecar recipe from Robert Simonson's 3-Ingredient Cocktails as my base, then added the cranberry bitters.  The biggest impact of the addition was the color.  I think the result looks like pink grapefruit juice.  There's also an extra hint of cranberry bitterness in the flavor.


  1. gracias por esta receta del cocktail, me encantan y este no lo he probado.

  2. Sounds like an interesting drink. I don't think of cranberries and alcohol, so this would be a different experience for me.

    1. You've never had a cosmopolitan?

      Entirely by coincidence, this is the second cranberry-based cocktail I've created. My first was the red-spotted newt.
