cranberry martnini 049

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here and I truly miss it! Life has been pretty hectic lately and to be honest I’ve had less time available to make cocktails and have just been drinking them šŸ˜‰

But behold! This Cranberry Martini made with homemade Cranberry Syrup…it’s not too sweet and has a subtle kick!

Cranberry Syrup Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

How to make: Place 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, he water and theĀ sugar in a small saucepan over medium heatĀ until brought to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until cranberries are tender but before they burst, about 15 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a medium bowl and let the strainer sit over the bowl until the syrup has cooled to room temperature, about 1 hour.

Other Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 parts unflavored vodka
  • 1/2 part orange-vanilla vodka (I used Voli Orange-Vanilla Fusion, however just orange flavored will work too)
  • 2 parts cranberry syrup
  • splash of fresh lime juice
  • splash of orange juice

To make: place into shaker both vodkas, cranberry syrup and ice cubes. Shake well. Pour into martini glasses. Splash the lime juice and orange juice. Garnish with fresh cranberries!
