Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl; press with back of spoon to release juices. Discard cranberry skins and lemon wedge. Scrape pulp from outside of sieve; transfer to bowl with juices.
For cocktails, muddle remaining 4 lemon wedges in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Stir in bourbon and maple extract. Place 1 large ice cube in each of 4 (6-oz. each) coupe glasses.
