This is a great alternative to a Cosmo but it’s sure potent! You will definitely need to play around with the measures to suit your taste. I like it a bit sweeter so added just a touch of sugar syrup and it works a treat!-01 Jan 2018

I have served these at two parties now to rave reviews. So refreshing! The only danger is it is easy to have too many! I would suggest playing with the amounts a few times before serving to guests. My first few were way to strong and the flavor was bitter, we ended up cutting the liquor almost in half and it was much better. We also made these in small pitchers so everyone could self-serve and it worked well.-05 Feb 2008

I am a diehard cosmopolitan drinker, and thought this one sounded good so I gave it a try. I used cran/raspberry juice and added a bit more juice than called for (2.5oz) and loved it! Cheers and thanks for the recipe.-12 Feb 2008

Cranberry Martini

Last November, I filmed a Food Network special called Thanksgiving Live to answer viewers' questions about cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Bobby Flay made a delicious cranberry martini to sip while we worked (what a good idea!). They look so festive and my guests loved them! Infuse the vodka with the orange zest and cranberries at least 2 days ahead. I like to use a vegetable peeler to make strips of orange zest—it’s so easy. Best of all you can prepare the entire cocktail mixture and refrigerate it for up to 3 days. Just shake with ice before serving.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup butter, cut into small chunks
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup chopped cranberries
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 8 1/2x4 1/2-inch loaf pan.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Stir butter into flour mixture until combined. Add orange juice, orange zest, and egg mix well. Fold in cranberries and walnuts. Spoon batter into the prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 60 to 75 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

What Is A Cosmopolitan Cocktail?

A Cosmopolitan, also referred as Cosmo, is a pink fruity cocktail made with vodka. The origin of this drink is somewhat uncertain. It’s credited to different bartenders from the 1970’s and1980’s, although the first reference to this mixed drink, comes from a gin, Cointreau, lemon, and raspberry syrup cocktail recipe published in a book in 1934.

The cosmopolitan gained popularity in the 1990’s when Carrie Bradshaw, the main character of the HBO show “Sex and the City”, made it her drink of choice. Quickly the Cosmo became the perfect girly drink!

Orange Cranberry Margarita Cocktail Recipe

  • 1.5 parts tequila
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part orange juice
  • 2 parts cranberry juice
  • Ice

Add all of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake lightly, until condensation forms on the shaker. Pour into glasses and serve!

I’ve tried this with cubed ice and crushed ice. I’ve found that both water the drink down too quickly, so a cocktail shaker was needed. The only way I would add ice to this and stir would be if it was frozen juice, or even pieces of frozen fruit. Some liquors taste pretty good watered down, but tequila is not one of them.

This recipe makes one cocktail. If you want to serve a bunch, you can pour all the ingredients into a pitcher and stir. If you want to keep them cold, store the pitcher in the fridge or keep it on ice. Or, do what I did for these photos, and drop some frozen cranberries in there. Nom.

Blood Orange & Cranberry &ndash Perfect Autumn Flavors

We all know that cranberry season is in the autumn months. Why else would cranberry sauce be on everyone&rsquos Thanksgiving table, whether it&rsquos eaten or not. But besides cranberry sauce, cranberries are great in drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic alike. Besides the most popular Cosmopolitan and Vodka Cranberry, if you google &lsquodrinks with cranberry juice&rsquo you get 98 million results. Cosmos were my favorite and go-to drink when I lived in Philly, and. well, that&rsquos a whole other story. I digress. For this special fall martini, instead of cranberry juice, we use Cranberry Relish with Grand Marnier, which you can order from our online shop. It is a delicious thick cranberry &ldquojam&rdquo which we just tasted, tested, and made this cocktail as its first appearance in the Spoonabilities recipe book.

Blood orange is another fall flavor that Carlos and I have discovered in the past year, and love it both in its natural form of juice squeezed from the blood oranges themselves, and also blood orange liqueur.

For a quick look at what a blood orange is and what it tastes like, check out this very short video:

The negative review about this drink tasting like koolaid are spot on. Find another recipe. There are better uses for alcohol.

I enjoyed this a lot. I think I'll also try it with some unsweetened cranberry juice next time.

I was intrigued by this recipe, first because I love cranberry juice and second, while I also love the almond in Amaretto, I've always found it too sweet for my taste. I find most liqueurs too sweet, and have even taken to making my own coffee liqueur for that very reason. So, bear with me here, and try this: use unsweetened cranberry juice. I made these with unsweetened cranberry juice (available at Whole Foods, etc), Amaretto and orange bitters. Fabulous!

Delicious! It tastes like a holiday cranberry sauce. We added a few drops of Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters to give it a hint of spices. That made it perfect!

My sister in law fixed as a cocktail before Christmas Day dinner. it was delicious! I will be making this again very soon! :)

This cocktail is wonderful, but I cannot stress enough how important it is to use a premium cranberry juice, like R.W. Knudsen's Just Cranberry. I know that stuff can get pricey, sometimes as much as $10 a bottle, but it's WORTH IT. You end up with a very balanced, not too sticky drink, when regular cranberry juice will just make it taste like thin Kool-Aid.

Made two versions of this recipe. One using fresh squeezed orange juice, like other reviewers stated it does taste like Kool-Aid. When I made it using Cointreau instead of the juice it was delicious and tasted like a smooth cosmo martini. Will definitely make this again using a scant less amaretto.

So good! Way better than a regular cosmopolitan. I think the sugar rim would make it too sweet.

This is a great one. Tried it already.

Very delicious and smooth! I made this for one, changing the measurements from cups to ounces and this is great fruity and breezy cocktail to have on a warm summer day. I only had orange-mango juice but it doesn't matter, the flavor of the mango compliments all the other flavors. I'll be making this for parties in the future!

Very nice. I will certainly save this recipe for future use.

Great drink recipe. Used no sugar added cranberry pomegranate juice and added a couple drops of vanilla extract. Definitely will make again when I have guests.

One more tip. rim the glasses in red sugar. Very pretty presentation! You will want to make a full recipe so that you can have a second or third :-)

This cocktail is fabulous. I first made it during the Christmas holidays a couple years ago. Everyone loved it, and it has been a staple ever since! You must like the taste of Amaretto to enjoy this cocktail. devine!

I adjusted the recipe to make 2 cocktails but liked it so much I made a 3rd. I highly recommend trying this, the amaretto really compliments the vodka and cranberry.

This is excellent! I tried one of the reviewer's suggestion and used light cranberry juice, half vanilla vodka/half plain, plus I added a small amount of lime juice to cut the sweetness.

I served this drink at my staff Christmas party. It was fun, festive and delicious! I had may requests for the recipe. Definitely made the party!

We first made this as a starter drink on Thanksgiving and it was a hit. Recently we hosted a party and all our guests loved it.

This was yummy! Also did the sugar on the rim. I took the advice of some others - used 1/2 vanilla vodka, half plain. ALso, used unsweetened cran juice and made my own syrup - the cinnamon, cloves, and star anise in it were great - subtle and nice! I thought it was good, as did many others, but some thought it was cloying - probably similar to those who had the koolaid experience. I also added a little more OJ. But I would make it again, certainly. Would make a great brunch cocktail too.

All the charm and taste of "Hawaiian Punch". Won't be serving it again.

We made it to kick off our Chistmas Eve festivities. We added pomegranite to add a little sour taste . Was a definite hit! All of our guests loved it!

I served this for a cocktail party and everyone LOVED it!

Easy, festive presentation and very tasty. I used vodka for one batch and rum for another(my husband do vodka) and both were very, very good. I also rimmed the martini glasses with raw sugar. Big hit and will absolutely make again. NOTE: They do pack a delicious punch, so consider yourself warned!

This drink is fabulous! I used Vanilla Stoli and Diet Cranberry juice for more vanilla and less sugar. Love this recipe!

I changed this drink by using orange and grapefruit juice. I added frozen cranberries to float in the drink which looked really good. Never thought amaretto would go well with juice but was pleasantly surprised.

Cranberry Martini (The Crantini) – with Homemade Cranberry Shrub

The Cranberry Martini is a sweet and slightly tart festive cocktail, made with a homemade cranberry shrub to give it a little bit of zing. This Cranberry Martini, Crantini if you will, is an easy and delicious cocktail to serve over the holidays, with only a few ingredients needed you can’t go wrong. I also give you my recipe for a super simple cranberry shrub (aka drinking vinegar), a great cocktail ingredient that will take your Cranberry Martini to the next level – spoiler alert: it’s REALLY easy to make at home and makes a great gift too!

Can you believe it’s almost Christmas time?! Where has the year gone? I swear, the older you get the faster the time goes by! The calendar doesn’t lie though, so it’s definitely time to start getting ready for the holidays! And I don’t know about you, but I need a few festive cocktails to get my Christmas spirit going – this Cranberry Martini is perfect for that! Cranberries are wonderful this time of year, and certainly not just for Thanksgiving! Here in the UK we don’t have Thanksgiving, so the turkey and all things cranberry are reserved for Christmas. Besides, you cannot deny how festive the colour of this Cranberry Martini is – it’s totally going to get you into the Christmas spirit just by looking at it!

This Cranberry Martini is a little more special than most of your average Cranberry Martini! What makes this Crantini special I hear you ask? The homemade Cranberry Shrub! A shrub is a drinking vinegar flavoured with fruits, florals, herbs or spices and is a great addition to many cocktails, it adds a little sweet tang to your drink and brings a whole new flavour profile to the mix. Making shrub at home is really easy, and there are a couple of ways to do it. My friend Dini, over at The Flavor Bender shows you a great way to make a cold shrub to get really fresh and vibrant flavours, and I used her recipe as a guide for mine. However, my cranberry shrub does wander off the traditional path a little, as cranberries don’t seem to like to let go of their juices very easily! Instead of steeping my cranberries in sugar to draw out the juices first, I roughly blended the cranberries with the sugar and let the whole mixture steep in the vinegar for a week – not the usual method but it totally works like a charm! You can also make shrub using the hot method which involves making a simple syrup with the fruit first!

I like my martinis on the dry side, so along with the gin and cranberry shrub, this Cranberry Martini has a touch of dry vermouth. It’s finished off with a couple dashes of orange bitters for a Crantini that you’re going to love to serve over and over this holiday season. And if you prefer you martinis on the sweet side, you can for sure switch out the vermouth for a sweet one – just don’t serve it me! Who I’m kidding, I’d totally drink a sweet Cranberry Martini too and I would love it!

Another festive cocktail – Mulberry Bramble!

Have you started getting ready for the holidays yet? Are you the kind of the person that plans everything way in advance, or are you a last-minute-shopping-on-Christmas-eve kind of person? I’m somewhere in the middle, I have the best of intentions to get everything sorted ahead of time but Christmas inevitably sneaks up on me and I go into a last minute panic on the 23 rd ! How about other festive holidays this time of year? Are you prepping for Hanukkah yet? I’ve never celebrated it myself, but I get the impression it requires a lot more planning than Christmas! Whatever you’re up to this festive season, I have a lot of yummy recipes coming your way to help you through, so don’t forget to subscribe below so you don’t miss any recipes (and as a Brucey Bonus you get my free e-book too!).
