Cranberry juice is a favorite of mine year round but its especially nice this time of year. Cranberries are also easy to find and make a beautiful garnish. Dip your glass in water and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes or so before serving. As I always say, feel free to play with the measurements to suit your taste. Want a stiff drink? Add more vodka, its ok I wont tell. Or add a little 7up for a sweeter touch.
1 part vodka (flavored vodkas are nice in this, try raspberry or citron) 1 part cranberry juice 2 parts club soda Lime Wedge
Mix the vodka and cranberry juice in a shaker filled with ice. Pour into a chilled glass and top with club soda. Add juice of 1 lime wedge & or garnish with wedge. *Frozen cranberries make a nice garnish and act as ice cubes that won'y water down your drink. You can also add a few cranberries to toothpicks, skewers or swizzle sticks for garnish.
