Ingredients

Cranberry Juice – I prefer the Simply brand. It’s not 100% juice but even though it’s cranberry juice cocktail, it’s got a lovely tart flavor.

Vodka – I’m not too picky about vodka. I buy the cheap stuff, but a real treat would be the lemon flavored Absolut citron.

Cointreau – adds a smooth citrus flavor.  Cointreau tastes just like an orange liqueur should taste. Just the essence of the orange. 

Lemon Sparkling Water – La Croix is the brand I had on hand, but you can use any unsweetened sparkling water you like. It doesn’t have to be lemon, as long as it’s something that goes well with Cranberry. I think the lemon is my favorite though.
