Uncommonly Clyde

This drink evolved from a Champagne and fresh berry compote drink that was being made at Portland's Clyde Common.


1 servings


1/2 cup crushed ice
1 tablespoon cranberry sauce *
2 fluid ounces bourbon whiskey
1/2 teaspoon brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®)
2 dashes aromatic bitters
1 fluid ounce cold water


Muddle the crushed ice and cranberry sauce in a rocks glass until the ice has been tinged red. Pour in the whiskey, orange liqueur, bitters, and water. Stir and serve.

Additional Information

* To make the cranberry sauce: Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Stir a 12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries together with 1 1/2 cups of white sugar, 1/2 cup of brandy, and 4 1/2 teaspoons of orange zest in a shallow baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until the berries are soft and the liquid has evaporated, about 1 hour. Allow the berries to cool completely before using in the cocktail above. Store the cranberries covered in the refrigerator.
