2 cups fresh cranberries

1 cup orange juice 

1/3 cup sugar 

3 cinnamon sticks 

1 liter (about 4 cups) bourbon 

Orange peels, for garnish 


  1. Combine the cranberries, orange juice, sugar and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves and cranberries start to pop, about 5 minutes. Let cool completely, then combine with the bourbon in a pitcher.
  2. To serve, pour into glasses over ice and garnish with an orange peel.
