Bog Harvest

A cool sipper for the Massachusetts cranberry farmer when harvest is in.
1 12 oz White whiskey, Bully Boy (As close to the Massachusetts bogs as a whiskey can get.)
1 12 oz Oloroso sherry
12 oz Cranberry shrub (See my recipé for it in my Thanksgiving Apéro.)
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
Instructions
Combine over ice in mixing glass, stir for 30 secs, strain into chilled coupe.
Notes
Another iteration of cranberry shrub for harvest time, here complemented by nutty winey oloroso and subtle wheat and rye backbone of local white whiskey. By the way, this is a sneaky libation so be careful out there.
History
Created to celebrate this year's cranberry shrub batch à la minute 11/22/11.
