  • 1 ½ ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • ½ ounce lime juice


  • Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for at least 10 seconds.
  • Strain into martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.


TIP: for a party, make a pitcher then measure out each drink and shake and serve. This way you're not measuring all night long. To scale it up: multiply each ingredient by the number of drinks (figure at least 2 per person). Then to make your drink, measure out 4 ounces of the mixture, shake and serve.
