Vodka Cranberry

You might think the Vodka Cranberry cocktail is simply vodka and cranberry juice, especially since that’s how some bars serve it. Well, some bars are lazy and shameful. This drink is actually a little more complicated than its name might lead you to believe.

Vodka Cranberry drink: cranberry juice, vodka, Rose's lime, orange juice

A proper Vodka Cranberry also uses a touch of Rose’s lime and orange juice to bring out the best of the cranberry flavor. This cocktail recipe is pretty light on the alcohol, so feel free to vary it according to your taste and tolerance.


  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 4 1/2 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1 dash Rose’s lime
  • 1 dash orange juice

Fill an old-fashioned glass halfway up with ice. Pour all the ingredients in. Serve with a straw.
