Cranberry juice adds a festive—and healthy—splash of red to your holiday cocktails. Mix it with some vodka and fresh orange juice for a refreshing drink to entertain your guests.
This sophisticated cocktail with a crisp cranberry kick is always my first choice of drink to serve at holiday parties.
Not only is it delicious, but it leaves a nice refreshing taste in your mouth and it's not too alcoholic.
Seasonal fresh orange and cranberry juice, vodka, a splash of lime and a sprig of thyme, all come together to make this vibrant boozy beverage.
It’s sweet, slightly on the tart side, and goes down a lot easier than I'd wish it to.
To make this festive cocktail, I've teamed up with the world-famous Italian design brand, Alessi. I've been obsessed with Alessi for ages, and I've managed to build up a nice collection of their products during my cooking years.
When making drinks, one of my favourite items to use is hands down the Juicy Salif.
It’s absolutely stunning, easy to use and very practical. I loved it even more after discovering the fascinating story behind it.
Far from being just a pretty squeezer, the Juicy Salif was designed by French designer, Philippe Starck back in the 90's.
The Juicy Salif is a handy companion in the kitchen, making my cranberry and orange vodka cocktail a total breeze.
Freshly squeezed oranges are simply mixed with cranberry juice, vodka, lime and a sprig of thyme in an ice-filled shaker.
All you have to do is shake! shake! shake! Like crazy for a handful of seconds and your holiday drink will be all ready to sip.
This cranberry and orange vodka cocktail is the perfect holiday drink to share with friends and family at your next party!?
