Woo Woo Cocktail

Woo Woo Cocktail recipe

The Woo Woo Cocktail¬† has a cranberry juice base with peach schnapps for flavor and vodka for fun. It finds a wonderful middle ground between tart and mellow sweetness, and packs a little bit of a punch.

Red Rudolph

Red Rudolph cocktail

The Red Rudolph cocktail is indeed named after that famous reindeer. And while it’s a great choice for Christmas time or cold weather, you shouldn’t let that stop you from enjoying it any time. This drink is served warm, and features the flavors of orange, cinnamon and cranberry. It’s great anytime you’re in the mood […]

Cranberry Kiss

Cranberry Kiss drink

The Cranberry Kiss cocktail takes your traditional margarita recipe and adds to it pure cranberry juice and a vanilla note. Pure cranberry juice that’s not diluted with other fruit juices is pretty tart, which is why you need the vanilla simple syrup (or a vanilla liqueur will work, too). The blend of cranberry and vanilla […]

Festive Jelly Shots

Festive Jelly Shots

These Festive Jelly Shots take a little bit of preparation, but they’re oh-so-wiggly and fun. They’re great for autumn and winter because the flavors are a combination of apple, cranberry and orange. Since these are solid objects rather than drinks, there are endless creative ways to serve them. Speared on top of shots of silver […]


Cramit Cocktail

The Cramit cocktail may sound rude, but it’s nothing but smooth. It blends amaretto with cranberry juice, and that’s a surprisingly nice combination.

Skinny Dipper

Greenish brown cocktail over ice in tall glass

The Skinny Dipper is all about the contrast between mellow and tart flavors, and blending the two to bring out the best in each other. The ratio is important here – three times as much of the tart cranberry juice as the mellow Midori. Cranberry and melon may not sound like a natural combo, but […]

Long Beach Iced Tea

Reddish brown clear cocktail over ice in tall glass with orange twist

The Long Beach Iced Tea is a cousin to the Long Island Iced Tea, substituting cranberry juice for the cola. That makes for a very refreshing, somewhat tangy drink that can perk you up after a long day. This is a stealth cocktail. It doesn’t taste nearly as strong as it is, so it can […]
