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.
