The cranberry martini is the perfect vodka martini for a hot summers day. The cranberry martini is not only very refreshing but also extremely easy to mix, making it the perfect cocktail for the those wanting to give cocktail making a try at home.
Mixing a cranberry martini really is very simple as it uses just three ingredients, vodka, cointreau and cranberry juice. You will need a cocktail shaker for this recipe, if you do not have one you should be able to pick one up pretty cheaply from your local super market or mall.
I personally use Absolut vodka to mix my cranberry martini, but please feel free to use the brand of vodka you personally prefer.
1oz on Absolut Vodka
1/2oz of Cointreau orange liqueur
3oz of cranberry juice
Pour the Absolut vodka, cointreau and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker and add a good helping of ice.
Give the ingredients a really good shake.
Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and serve.
Now all that is left to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your freshly mixed cranberry martini as you soak up the summer sun.
