This is crying out for a variation with unsweetened cranberry juice and no lime. :)


I used to do a drink with unsweetened cranberry juice, lime peel-heavy falernum, and white rum. Unsweetened cranberry juice isn't as acidic as citrus (or the bottled stuff isn't anyway) but it's still a fun and underexplored mixer. Good call.


I tried a variation based on Dan's suggestion: 1 oz Campari to a half ounce each Creole Shrubb and unsweetened cranberry juice, pinch of salt. Nicely tart and bitter, but I missed the lime flavor.

I'm glad you are so obedient, DrunkLab! Oh well.

Made with 1 1/2 oz Campari, 3/4 oz Cointreau, 1/2 oz lime, 1/2 oz cranberry (2 tsp unsweetened cranberry juice and 1 tsp simple syrup) and the pinch of salt. Very good.

I put it into my 2nd book (Boston Cocktails: Drunk & Told) a few years later as 1 1/2 oz Campari, 3/4 oz Creole Shrubb Orange Liqueur, 3/4 oz Lime, 1/2 oz cranberry, 1 pinch salt. Russell House had large builds back then, and I created it on the fly for a ticket that asked for a Campari drink with a request that I make it (I wasn't working the service bar that night so I felt free to give them something unique). Probably 1 1/2 : 1/2 : 1/2 : 1/2 : 1 pinch would work well too since that's the build I use for my Cosmos lately, but I have not revisited this drink in a few years.


Made w/ Meehan Cosmo spec ratios so I can use 100% cranberry juice (60 mL Campari; 22.5 mL orange liqueur (killed the bottle of shrub + finished off with cointreau); 22.5 mL lime; 15 mL cranberry; 7.5 mL simple; pinch salt).
