To make the sparkling cranberries, add the cranberries and sour mix to a shallow bowl. Let the cranberries soak in the sour mix for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Strain the cranberries, collecting and reserving the sour mix (you can use it for making the cocktails). Spread the granulated sugar out onto a large plate. Add the strained cranberries and roll them around to coat them in the sugar. The sparkling cranberries can be used immediately, or transferred to an airtight container and stored in your refrigerator for about 5 days.
To make the cocktail, add the whiskey, sour mix and cranberry juice to a shaker with ice. Shake and then strain into a fresh glass with ice. Garnish with a few sparkling cranberries. Serve immediately.
