Every now and then at Kootenay Spice, we like to mix things up a bit! This post is actually more so shaken, not stirred… We are making vodka crantinis!
When making martinis or crantinis, a main contributor to flavour is quality liquour. For our crantinis, we use Grey Goose vodka. Pure cranberry juice also adds to the flavour. If you can, avoid ‘cocktails’ or ‘blends’, as they tend to contain more sugar & additives.
This recipe will make 2 drinks (1.5 oz alcohol each) and requires the following:
3 oz vodka
1.5 oz cranberry juice
1 oz sprite/7-up
10 – 20 frozen cranberries
1 – 2 cups ice
Place the ice into a martini shaker and add the vodka and cranberry juice. Do not add the sprite. Shake well.
Divide the sprite into two chilled martini glass. Add the frozen cranberries.
Shake the martini shaker once more and carefully divide into the two martini glasses.
Serve and enjoy responsibly!
