The Temptress cocktail answers the question of what happens when vodka meets grenadine and ginger ale. It’s sweet, fruity and just a little bit spicy.

Temptress drink with cherry

This is a nice drink for an evening out – think of it as an alternative to a Vodka Cranberry. The dominant note is cherry, with ginger as a close second. The carbonation gives it a fun texture and the ginger flavor makes it refreshing.


  • 1 1/4 ounces vodka
  • 1 1/4 ounces grenadine
  • Ginger ale

Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes. Pour in the grenadine and vodka. Fill the rest of the way with ginger ale and garnish with a cherry.
