Welcome guests warmly by greeting them with a tray of Crantinis.

1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1/2 cup citrus vodka or plain vodka
1/4 cup Triple Sec or orange juice
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
fresh cranberries, if desired
lime slices, if desired


Fill martini shaker or 3-cup covered container half full with ice. Add all ingredients except cranberries and lime slices; cover and shake.

Pour into martini or tall stemmed glasses, straining the ice. Garnish glasses with fresh cranberries and lime slices on picks.

Estimated Time

Preparation/Total Time: 5 minutes

Additional Information

Skip the vodka and use club soda for a delicious nonalcoholic drink.

Crantinis are sweeter than regular martinis. True martini drinkers may want to cut the cranberry juice cocktail in half. For a slightly less potent drink, serve Crantinis on the rocks and add a splash of sparkling water. And for extra dash, place a strip of lime peel in the bottom of each glass.

If you're having a large gathering and find yourself short on glassware, check a party store for plasticware you can toss for easy cleanup.
