  • 100 ml (⅓ cup + 1 tbsp) Vodka
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) Cointreau or Triple Sec See Note 1
  • 250 ml (1 cup) cranberry juice sweetened
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice See Note 2
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • garnish of your choice - eg: orange, lime, rosemary


  • Put all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker or jar.
  • Shake well to thoroughly combine the ingredients and ensure they are chilled. 
    Strain into a martini glass or another glass of your choice.
  • Serve with a garnish if you wish. I like orange peel, a twist of lime and sometimes a sprig of rosemary for a festive touch!


  1. I prefer to use Cointreau but you can use Triple Sec if you prefer.
  2. Always use freshly squeezed lime juice, the flavour is fresher and more vibrant than the juice from a bottle. 
  3. Please note, the nutritional information is based on one drink. The nutritional information is an estimate only.
