Cranberry Martini

Day 183

Cranberry Martini
5 shots out of 5

Nothing better then having a cocktail with a good friend!  Thank You Stephanie for enjoying tonight's cocktail with me!  Is it Friday yet?  I can almost taste the weekend....maybe if I have another cocktail I'll be able to taste it a little more?

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  We had initially made this cocktail at Stephanie's Cranberry Party she had, check it out here.  I must admit, we (Stephanie and I) created this cocktail and love it so very much!  I think it's the citrus vodka that makes this cocktail taste super good.  Unfortunately this cocktail goes down quite smoothly and it's too easy to make yourself a few of them.  Actually that's not a bad thing, right?

Here is the recipe for a Cranberry Martini:

  • 1 shot citrus vodka
  • 1 shot cranberry juice
  • 1/2 shot sweet & sour mix
  • 1/2 shot triple sec
In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake it up well and strain it into your martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to good friends and good cocktails, and when you have them both it makes cocktail hour even better!
