This recipe was developed, like most good things, out of necessity and leftovers. On Thanksgiving we were looking to make a festive cocktail, and had just made homemade cranberry sauce. I got to mixing and created my favorite non-tequila cocktail to date — this Cranberry Cocktail! Grab the Best Holiday Cocktail recipe below…

The Perfect Holiday Cocktail: Cranberry Cocktail Recipe

This cranberry cocktail recipe is super easy to make (just 3 ingredients!) and is perfect for tree-trimmings, Christmas parties, Christmas dinner…or you know, a Wednesday night.

You could probably even make a virgin non-alcoholic version by subbing out the vodka for sparkling water.

DIRECTIONS:

1. Add to shaker: ice, 2 tsp cranberry sauce, 4 oz vodka, squeeze of half a lemon.
