Sanguine Eyes

Capture the spirit of the holidays at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ twinkling Chandelier Bar with this scarlet-hued, cranberry-infused cocktail. Property mixologist Mariena Mercer pairs a festive relish with brandy, port and cinnamon syrup to potent effect. Drink up, and you’ll quickly find yourself in a festive mood.

1/2 oz. Dow’s fine ruby red port
1/2 oz. Germain-robin apple brandy
1/2 oz. Bittermans Hiver Amer
1 oz. cinnamon syrup
2 oz. cranberry relish

Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain into a champagne coupe.

"This cocktail is redolent of my mother’s cranberry relish, a seasonal staple at our family dinners," says Mercer.
