Cranberry Apple Whiskey Cocktail Recipe

Cranberry Apple Whiskey Cocktail brings all the best vibes of winter. A delicious fizzy bit of excitement for your Fall and winter holidays.

Crown Apple Cranberry Drink With Apple Slices

I love apple drinks with whiskey and cranberry juice. On a cold winter night this is a perfect sipping companion.

I created this recipe with unsweetened Cranberry Juice, Crown apple Whiskey and 7up. It couldn’t be easier or more fun. I love the sweet cranapple fizz of this drink.

The garnish is nice too. The cranberries bob on top of the ice. I like to eat the apple slices. 🙂

Does Whiskey mix well with Cranberry Juice?

Whiskey and cranberry juice mix really well together. We used Crown Apple for the whiskey in this recipe, the apple whiskies make a perfect cranberry-apple flavor combination. More whiskey options are Jack Daniels Tennessee Apple Whiskey, Black Velvet Apple Whiskey, or Jim Beam Apple Bourbon Whiskey.

What mixes good with Crown Apple?

Crown Apple mixes well with lots of flavors. This whiskey has a delicious apple flavor that can be enjoyed straight, or mixed into a cocktail. Here are a few of our favorite pairings:

  1. Apple Cider
  2. Sparkling Cider
  3. Ginger Beer
  4. 7-up
  5. Cranberry Juice
  6. Cream Soda
  7. Pineapple Juice
  8. Orange Juice
  9. Cinnamon Whiskey (fireball)
  10. Lemonade
Apple Berry Cocktail

Make This Recipe as a Punch:

This cranberry drink is all about Fall Harvest flavors. This is a perfect punch choice for your Christmas holiday parties or Thanksgiving cocktail menu. It’s fairly inexpensive and has large appeal.

You can adjust the proportions of the ingredients as you like. It’s a dynamite flavor combination. Tweak it to your taste and let us know how it goes.

For Every 10 servings you will need:

  • 15 oz. Apple Whiskey
  • 8 oz. Unsweetened Cranberry juice
  • 40 oz. 7UP (This is about 1 1/4 liter)

Just Chill all the ingredients ahead and make it immediately before serving at your party. Keep an ice bucket next to your punch bowl with tongs. No ice goes into the punch bowl or the drink will dilute. You don’t want that.


Ingredients For Cranberry Apple Whiskey Cocktail
Crown apple whiskey, Cranberry Juice and 7-up
Cut Apple Slices With Half A Red Apple On Wooden Cutting Board.
Cut a few apple slices. Just slide them into the glass after its poured. That will mix the drink adequately for you.


Adding Fresh Cranberries For Garnish


This winter whisky cocktail is made with Canadian whisky. I’m sure any brand of apple whiskey will work for this drink. Jack Daniels just released their own Tennessee version and Jim Beam also has an apple whiskey. I can’t wait to try both of them too.

Cranberry Juice:

I’m using an UNSWEETENED cranberry juice. It blends very well with the whiskey and 7up. The drink is not too sweet but also not tart. A sweetened cranberry juice will most likely work well but it will be a bit sweeter.

The Fizz:

7up adds a light sweet fizz to this drink. The sparkling bubbliness brings in a new and welcome element. The sweet counterpoints beautifully with the unsweetened cranberry juice. It’s a great blend of flavors and textures.

Pouring 7Up Into Drink
7up adds a nice sweet fizz

The Method:

Just pour and garnish. This is a very simple cocktail. It’s complete in about three minutes. Gathering the ingredients and slicing the apples is the longest part.

I'm hosting a birthday party and would love to serve this! When making it as a punch, do you recommend using a pitcher that has an ice container in the middle? Then each guest could pour it over their individual glass of ice. That way I could keep it out on the bar.
