The season of cranberry cocktails is upon us folks and without further adieu I bring you the Sparkling Vodka Cranberry Cocktail! I know it’s not the most inventive name in the world, but I’ve never said I’m good at naming drinks.. just making them. You may also want to check out my other well named cocktail 😉 – Cranberry Rum Ginger Ale.
How to Make a Vodka Cranberry Cocktail
This cocktail is a great choice to serve for Christmas – it’s refreshing and seasonal. Pick up some cranberry juice from the grocery store as well as a bottle of vodka. You’ll combine the juice and the vodka according using the quantities I mention in the recipe card below. Add these to a glass with ice and then top with the club soda. You’ll then want to give it a light stir to ensure you don’t flatten the drink.
Things you’ll need:
- Cranberry Juice
- Club Soda
- Glass with ice
Where to find Christmas glasses
I recommend using a nice Christmas glass – you can often find these at thrift stores or antique malls if you don’t have any. I’d imagine any store that sells glasses would be a decent option but I prefer to thrift my glassware as it’s cheaper and the glasses are often vintage meaning they are often of better quality.
Garnish with appropriate seasonal items like these snowflakes. Hint: I found these at my local dollar store.
