Mix up these festive Cranberry Negroni’s up for Thanksgiving or Christmas or any holiday that you’re celebrating. They not only look amazing but they taste it too.

I used my Negroni cocktail from a while back and kicked it up with the flavor of cranberry. Lots of cranberry…

The ice cubes are even made from cranberries! I took fresh cranberries and threw them in my blender with some water. They turned out even better than I thought they would – it looks like there’s actually cranberry juice in there but there’s not. It’s just fresh cranberries and water.

So when these cranberry ice cubes melt your drink gets infused with more cranberry flavor.

Negroni’s have that classic bitters flavor from the Campari and, well, the bitters. I used Dillon’s Cranberry Bitters for this Cranberry Negroni recipe. One of the wife’s friends got her a sampling of their bitters and we’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with them. They have some crazy flavors of bitters, pear, rhubarb, ginsing and lime just to name a few.

Also, if you’re not a huge bitters fan, or campari fan, you’re still going to like this drink. The cranberry flavor definitely mellows out the “bitter” bitters taste making it a great cocktail for sipping.

And you’re gonna want to sip…this Cranberry Negroni looks pretty but it’ll sneak up on you. One or two of these will definitely carry you through the night.
