Cranberry Sauce Cocktail

2 servings

This Cranberry Spritzer uses leftover cranberry sauce to create a delicious cocktail. Add orange liqueur, cranberry sauce and vodka to some orange juice and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Cover tightly and be like Elvis – get “All Shook Up”.

Strain this mixture into your glasses and top with a little sparkling water. (you can use flavored sparkling water if you like. I enjoy orange flavor to further enhance the citrus tastes in this drink)

I dipped the moistened glass in sugar before filling, for an extra touch. This is of course entirely optional but I like the extra sweetness and I’ll bet you will too.

Got leftover cranberry sauce?

Don't let it go to waste! Use it to make this delicious cocktail!

You might want to make extra sauce just for the cocktails!! :)
