How to Make a Madras Drink

The Madras is a simple vodka based drink that combines three basic ingredients; Vodka, Orange Juice and Cranberry Juice. I’ve specified the quantities below in the recipe card but to get started, make sure you have these available.

To make this drink, combine the vodka, orange juice and cranberry juice in a glass with ice and stir with your bar spoon. Garnish and serve.

Madras Drink – Tips and Tricks

  1. I personally recommend freshly squeeze orange juice as it tends to be better and really makes a difference in the drink.
  2. When it comes to the garnish, a lime slice or an orange slice works. Go with whatever you prefer.
  3. You can get great straws to use within the drink from your local dollar store. These particular ones look great and cost next to nothing for a large bag of them.
