Cranberry and orange flavors are warm and Christmasy to me and taste amazing together. I am not a warm drink kind of gal so I’m always on the hunt for a drink that is cold but with warm flavors….does that make sense?

This cocktail hits those keynotes for me! This is a twist on my Lemon Drop Martini, which is my summer go-to cocktail.

Questions and Answers:

  • Do I need the sugar sprinkles on the rim?

Absolutely not but for reals, you won’t regret it!

  • Could I add a dollop of whipped cream right before I serve?

As I type this I’m seriously upset with myself for not thinking of this earlier!

  • Can I use OJ instead of freshly squeezed oranges?

ummmmm I guess I am not sure, I never have! The fresh-squeezed orange juice is just so much lighter.

If you’ve had a hectic day then by all meals make this cocktail with plain simple syrup but, because there is always a but, the flavored simple syrup is worth it!
