In this episode, Terri goes rouge without a script or an outline as a challenge to see if she can have a cohesive thought while having hot flashes.

Luckily, the Celebrated Sagamore is spectacular and you should definitely make it.


  • 1.5 oz Sagamore Rye
  • 3 oz Sparkling Cava
  • .5 oz Lime Juice
  • .75 oz Spiced Cranberry Syrup


  1. Add Sagamore Rye, lime juice, and spiced cranberry syrup to a champagne flute. Swirl the glass to mix.
  2. Tilt glass and gently pour in Cava.
  3. Garnish with lime and cranberry.
  4. Spiced Cranberry Syrup: Mix equal parts water, sugar, and fresh cranberries in a pot. For every one cup cranberries, add one cinnamon stick and one rosemary sprig. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes. Chill overnight, and strain.

This is similar to the syrup Terri makes:

In a small pot, bring water and sugar to a boil.  Add cranberries and stir until coated in syrup.   Cook for 30-45 seconds just before the cranberries start to pop open.  Remove from heat and transfer to a 1/2 liter jar.  Add cinnamon stick.  Pour in brandy.  Pour in enough sugar syrup to fill the jar.  Cover with lid and let chill in the fridge for at least 48 hours before using.  The longer it sits, the better it gets

  • 6 oz fresh cranberries, washed and picked
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 cup brandy
