Recipe - Cranberry Martini

Frozen Cranberry Martini

½ cup plus 2 T cranberry juice
¼ cup sugar
¾ cup fresh frozen cranberries, rinsed
3 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
4 oz. vodka
3 oz. Grand Marnier   

Pour all ingredients into the pitcher of a blender. Fill pitcher with ice. Blend until smooth. Add cranberry syrup from sugared cranberries to thin to desired consistency.  Use extra cranberry juice if you have no syrup.
Pour into a sugar rimmed glass & enjoy!  Serve with Sugared Cranberries at your next cocktail party or holiday dinner.
Substitute tequila for vodka to make a Frozen Cranberry Margarita.

( I would have posted a recipe Thursday or Friday of this week, but seeing how this is the perfect cocktail for your Thanksgiving festivities, I thought you might need the recipe early.  Enjoy!)


  1. This sounds so good and looks so refreshing. I'm happy to have found another way to use cranberries. Yum!

  2. Mmmmm....sounds yummy! I'm always looking for a new martini recipe! And so festive, too.
