Choosing Your Cranberry Juice

You can use 100% unsweetened cranberry juice in this cocktail, or opt for cranberry juice cocktail which is usually sweetened with sugar. If you want a less sweet, more tart flavor, opt for unsweetened cranberry juice. If you prefer your drinks a bit sweeter, a cranberry juice cocktail might be a better option. There are plenty of cranberry juice blends on the market as well if you want to add some extra fruit flavor to your cup!

Crown Royal and cranberry is a simple, but delicious cocktail. If you want to spruce it up a bit, try these variations:

  • Garnish: Add a lime wedge or lemon wedge and squeeze it into your drink for added citrus flavor.
  • Add Ginger Ale: Top your Crown & Cranberry with ginger ale for a sweet, bubbly finish. Ginger ale’s flavor pairs well with the tart cranberry and warm depth of Crown whisky.
  • Royal Flush: Make a Royal Flush by adding peach schnapps to your drink for a fruitier and sweeter cocktail.
  • Use Crown Apple: Try using Crown Royal Apple whiskey to add apple flavor to this drink – the apple whiskey goes great with cranberry for a fall-flavored cocktail.
Please drink responsibly, be fully accountable with your alcohol consumption, and show others respect.
