Cranberry Blast

The Cranberry Blast cocktail is pretty much just what it sounds like. There are hints of orange and lemon, and a little peach from the schnapps, but mostly what hits you is the cranberry.

Cranberry Blast drink in tall glass with ice

With three ounces of alcohol, this drink is less of a lightweight than the taste might make you think. The tartness of the cranberry and orange with the mellowness of the peach schnapps make this just fruity enough to hide that alcohol flavor so it goes down super-smooth.


  • 2 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces peach schnapps
  • 1/2 ounce dark rum
  • 1/2 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce scotch
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Lime wedge

Fill a glass with ice cubes. Pour in all the ingredients and stir well.
