BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — In this week's Foodie Friday, 23ABC's Kallyn Hobmann teamed up with her dad, Steve Hobmann, to show us some of their favorite holiday drinks.
Cranberry Whiskey Sours
- 2 cups fresh cranberries
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup lime juice

Combine two cups of fresh cranberries, two cups of fresh water and two cups of sugar in a medium saucepan. Add two cinnamon sticks and bring that to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer for about ten minutes and wait for the cranberries to open. Then pour the cranberry mixture over a large strainer to create a syrup.
Once the syrup is cooled, combine 3/4 cups of the syrup with 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of lime juice, 1/4 cup of orange juice and 3/4 cup of your favorite whiskey all in a cocktail mixer with ice.
Shake, pour into your cup, and enjoy!
