Recipe: Merry & Bright Cocktail

The very festive love-child of the Dark and Stormy and the ever classic Old Fashioned.

Reminiscent of cozy winter nights with notes of cinnamon, cranberry, orange, ginger and spice. Recipe courtesy of Jack Quinn's Irish Pub and Restaurant. 


  • 1.5 oz Spiced Rum
  • Ginger Beer 
  • Orange Slice
  • 5 Fresh Cranberries
  • Aromatic Bitters (a few drops)
  • Cinnamon Stick


In a rocks glass add an orange slice, fresh cranberries and a few drops of aromatic bitters. Add spiced rum of choice and muddle. Top glass with ice and then ginger beer to the top. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
Drink slowly, allowing the ingredients to mull into a winter night’s dream
