For the Cocktail
3 oz. citron vodka
1 oz. white cranberry juice
1/2 oz. cointreau
1 oz. fresh lime juice
Fresh mint leaves
Sugar covered cranberries*
Red toothpicks or wooden skewers
*Substitute with frozen cranberries or raspberries
Fill a small glass with ice.Combine the cocktail ingredients and mix well. Adjust with extra lime or cranberry juice to suit your taste. There should be a fine balance between sweet & tart. Alternatively, you can shake up your ingredients with ice and strain into chilled martini glasses.
For the garnish, skewer mint sprigs and sugar covered cranberries (2) onto a toothpick. Place on the rim of the glass (not in the drink) so that the sugar doesn’t melt. Let your guests use it to stir their cocktail. *See note below. Serve straight away!
* You might find that toothpicks are too short to balance on the rim of your glass. Substitute with wooden skewers instead. Cut them down to your desired size and proceed with the garnish.
