Today’s clever cocktail is a simple concoction that will make you want to have a bit of extra cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. The Vodka Cranberry Smash couldn’t be easier to make and is a tart, refreshing cocktail that is the perfect pre-curser to the turkey.
Vodka Cranberry Smash
In a shaker glass ½ filled with cracked ice add:
- 1 Tablespoon of Cranberry Sauce*
- 1 Tablespoon of Orange Juice
- 1 ½ Ounces of Vodka
Shake like crazy to break down the cranberry sauce and chill well. Pour all into an oversized lowball glass, top with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
*If using canned cranberry sauce, dice into small pieces to make it easier to combine. For a sweeter version substitute the club soda with 7up.
