Russian Sunset

The Russian Sunset cocktail is tart and refreshing, but definitely fruity and sweet. It features four ounces of sour mix and four ounces of alcohol altogether.

Russian Sunset drink with cherry

This is a fairly potent cocktail, which makes it nice alongside a hearty meal. It’s also nice as an after-dinner drink.


  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces triple sec
  • 4 ounces sour mix
  • Dash of Grenadine

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour in the vodka, triple sec and sour mix, and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a chilled glass. Splash the grenadine over the top. Garnish with a cherry.
