Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
  • 1/4 oz triple sec
  • 1/4 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 Lime wedge or twist optional garnish

Instructions

  1. To make this pretty lime twist, use a vegetable peeler to make one long peel of a lime zest. Use scissors to trim off an even, narrow strip and then twist that strip of lime skin around a chopstick. Set aside (or in the freezer) while you prepare the cocktail.

  2. Now, if your ingredients are not already cold, you are going to want to use a cocktail shaker for this recipe to chill and blend all of the ingredients.

    If you're like me and keep the vodka in your freezer so that it stays ice cold, you can skip the shaker and measure your ingredients out into your glass, just be sure to give it a quick stir before you sip.

  3. Measure out your ingredients into your cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 1 minute.

  4. Pour out the cocktail into a martini glass and garnish with your lime wedge or twist.

  5. Enjoy immediately.
