Easy Three-Ingredient Sparkling Cranberry Cocktail
I love, love, love the taste of vodka with apple juice. I also love the taste of vodka with cranberry juice. It only stood to reason that I needed to get these three ingredients together for a tasty threesome. If you've been in my kitchen, you know that I own very few kitchen gadgets. Give me a spoon and bowl, and I'm good to go. Given my aversion to kitchen tools, I own even fewer bar tools...like zero, unless you can count my zester. So when it comes to my holiday cocktails, well, come to think of it I usually stick with wine or beer. This year however, I wanted to come up with a few easy and affordable cocktails for my cook book. For Christmas I came up with this 3-Ingredient Sparkling Cranberry Cocktail. No tools, no measuring, and no Tom Cruise bottle-twirling skills required.
- sparkling apple cider
- cranberry juice
It couldn't be easier to make. You don't need any bar tools to make it, just the glasses you plan to serve it in. Start with the sparkling cider, and fill each glass 2/3 full, then fill the rest with cranberry juice, leaving room for a splash of vodka. Of course you can leave out the vodka for a sparkling cranberry cider mocktail.
Garnish with fresh cranberries. Cheers!
