Cranberry Martini Tips:

  • If using unsweetened cranberry juice, you may want to add 1/2 oz. simple syrup, depending on how sweet you like your cocktails.
  • For the best martinis, serve them in a chilled martini glass, and always use chilled ingredients.
  • Don’t have a martini glass? You can serve these in a coupe glass, or any cocktail glass you prefer, really.

FAQs:

What kind of vodka should I use?

Any good vodka is fine, we really try not to be snobby with our vodka brands. We love Tito’s because it is made in America and makes the perfect smooth drink.
