Cranberry Orange Vodka Cocktail Recipe Tips

  • You can omit the maple syrup for a less sweet cocktail.
  • If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can mix the drink together in a pitcher or large glass and strain through a sieve.
  • Not a fan of vodka? Use whiskey instead and skip the sparkling water for a fun twist – a cranberry whiskey sour!
  • Mix up a big pitcher of it ahead of time, and simply top with the sparkling water right before you serve if you’re making this recipe for a crowd.
