Kansas Couture Cocktail: Cranberry Clementine Rye

It's been a long time since I've shared a cocktail recipe on the blog, so here goes! This is one of my go-to cocktails because it's easy and always hits the stop. It's not too sweet, not too boozy and goes down a little too easy!

-1.5 oz. Rye Whiskey
-1.5 oz. Clementine Soda (I get mine from Trader Joe's. Anything orange-y will do, but go for something juice-based, not Fanta or Orange Crush.)
-1/2 oz. 100% Cranberry Juice (The 100% cranberry is nice and tart and stands in for a citrus element. If you use sweetened cranberry juice, it will be a very different cocktail.)

Simply place all the ingredients in a champagne glass and enjoy. If you want it nice and cold, you can serve it on the rocks in a cocktail glass or shake the whiskey and cranberry with ice and top the drink with the soda.
