Cranberry Vodka Cocktail

Let’s keep this short and sweet today. I have a fun cocktail for you. It is perfect for your holiday get together, New Years Eve, or just because you have some cranberries lying around. Vodka and Cranberry is a very classic drink, I just added some fizz. I have a thing about fizz. For some reason, I think that cocktails need to have fizz in them! Call me crazy, or call me genius – just make this drink.

Cranberry and vodka is a classic cocktail combination. It is simple, tangy, and just plain delicious. As much as I like the classic combination, I always have to mix things up. So I added a little splash of something fizzy. Because by this point, we all know I like my cocktail with some fizz!! I mean Skinny Mojitos are probably my new favorite.

Cranberry vodka cocktail is just one of those drinks you can throw together on a Friday night or you can serve at a party. The fresh cranberries, when it season, just give it a little something extra for presentation. Definitely not required. Add a slice of lime and you will something pretty enough to serve at your fanciest party!

You can make this cranberry vodka cocktail for just one, or make a whole pitcher of them! If you make a whole picture, leave out the ginger ale until you serve. Just let each person add a splash as they pour one.

Or put out a big punch bowl, and add the ginger ale right as your guests arrive. Less work for you, and the drink stays fizzy. If you are feeling festive, add a little squeeze of lime to the drink for a little twist.

7 Cool and Refreshing Vodka Cocktails for the Summer

What makes an ideal summer cocktail? In short, it should be cool, crisp and refreshing. Since that sums up vodka perfectly, no wonder it’s a base for so many summertime sippers.

Vodka’s versatility lends itself to cocktails made using seasonal fruit like strawberries and blackberries, or freshly picked herbs like basil, highlighting rather than hiding those vibrant colors and flavors. It also plays well with the refreshing bubbles found in Prosecco and ginger beer.

These light, bright sips are perfect for alfresco entertaining. Serve them poolside, at patio parties or when picnicking with friends.

The liquid ingredients are measured out in equal proportion, making this one of the easiest drink templates around. No wonder Strawn developed this no-fuss strawberry sipper for his new “urban beach house” bar, inspired by Long Island’s languid East End.

  • 4 fresh strawberries, plus 1 for garnish
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • ¾ ounce vodka
  • ¾ ounce St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice

In a cocktail shaker, muddle 4 strawberries with simple syrup. Add remaining ingredients and ice. Shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a strawberry on the rim of the glass.

This riff on the classic gimlet is particularly cool and refreshing. Multiple garnishes increase the wow factor of this otherwise straightforward drink, but one or more can be omitted, if preferred.

  • 1 tablespoon celery salt, for rimming
  • Orange wedge, for rimming
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 basil leaves
  • 2 dashes celery bitters
  • Basil leaf, for garnish
  • Lime wheel, for garnish

Pour celery salt on a small plate. Moisten half of the outer rim of a double old-fashioned glass with the orange wedge. Roll the glass in the salt to coat half the glass rim. Set the prepared glass aside.

In a cocktail shaker, combine the next 5 ingredients with ice. Shake vigorously. Scoop fresh ice into the prepared glass, and strain the drink into the glass. Garnish with basil and lime.

This flavorful, Texas-themed cocktail was introduced at South by Southwest, the music, film and interactive festival that takes over Austin each March. The name of the drink is tongue-in-cheek: It’s not only a reference to Austin’s famed capitol building, but also a knowing tribute to many Texans’ belief that the state is its own republic.

  • 1 ounce citrus-flavored vodka
  • 1 ounce grapefruit juice
  • ½ ounce Amontillado Sherry
  • ½ ounce honey syrup (equal parts honey and hot water)
  • Grapefruit wedge, for garnish

Recipe courtesy Nico Szymanski , head mixologist , Gerber Group, New York City

This cocktail was created for Irvington, Gerber Group’s new restaurant across from NYC’s Union Square. While Szymanski sources his produce from local farmers at the famed Union Square Greenmarket , bonus points to you if you can pluck fresh mint and blackberries from your garden to make this tall, bubbly drink.

  • 5 mint leaves, plus mint sprig for garnish
  • 3 blackberries, plus 1 for garnish
  • 1½ ounces vodka
  • ¾ ounce Byrrh
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • Club soda

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves and blackberries. Add the next 4 ingredients and ice. Shake well, and double-strain over fresh, crushed ice into a highball glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with mint sprig and skewered blackberry.

Buzzword: Byrrh (pronounced beer) is an aromatized, wine-based apéritif made in France. Substitute sweet vermouth if Byrrh is unavailable.

Not unlike an adult slushy, this icy-cold Venetian classic is a terrific palate cleanser. It’s often served after dinner as a light alternative to dessert, traditionally made with lemon sorbet. “If a bar has a sgroppino on the menu, I always know I’m going to like the place right away,” says Wildy.

  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 scoop lemon sorbet (or any fruit flavor)
  • 3 ounces Prosecco, plus an additional splash
  • Mint spring, for garnish (optional)

In a stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the vodka, lemon sorbet and a splash of Prosecco until it reaches a slushy consistency. Add the remaining Prosecco and whisk slowly until incorporated. Pour into a martini glass or Champagne flute. Garnish with mint, if desired.
