How to Make a Vodka Cranberry

The beloved Vodka Cranberry has only two ingredients:

  • Vodka
  • Cranberry Juice – we recommend using cranberry cocktail rather than 100% cranberry juice, which is very tart with no sweetness.

Simply combine the vodka and cranberry juice. Mix together and pour into a tumbler filled with ice.

Add a splash of grapefruit juice for a Sea Breeze!

How to Serve

The rich, red color of the cranberry juice makes this drink not only easy on the taste buds but easy on the eyes as well. The Vodka Cranberry cocktail is typically served over ice in a tumbler. Garnishing with a lime wedge is optional, but I would recommend it!
