Madras cocktail

The Madras cocktail is somewhat reminiscent of a Cosmopolitan, but with considerably more cranberry juice and less lemon flavor. It’s a slightly more mellow taste, and it’s also a little less strong.

Madras Cocktail drink with lime

Enjoy a Madras when you’re in the mood for fruit juice, because you’ll be getting five ounces of it in every serving. This is a great cocktail for an evening out when you need a sugar boost, or for relaxing with a mild drink at the end of the day.


  • 1 1/2 ounce vodka
  • 4 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1 lime wedge

Fill a highball with ice. Pour in the vodka, cranberry juice and orange juice. Garnish with a lime wedge, and serve with a stir straw.
