This festive cranberry vodka spritzer is lightly sweetened with a touch of honey and full of tart berry flavor from a fresh cranberry puree. It’s perfect for all of your holiday entertaining.
We’re already more than halfway through October, so I definitely think it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. For the most part, I make the same meal every year, but I do like to mix it up from time to time and try a different side dish or tweak a favorite dish to update it, like this Panko Parmesan Topped Green Bean Casserole. I also always like to come up with a signature cocktail to serve.
I think it’s fun to have a special cocktail to serve your guests on Thanksgiving, it just helps to set a festive tone. This cranberry vodka spritzer is the perfect drink for that.
This cocktail starts with fresh cranberries which are combined with a touch of honey, a little bit of water and then blended into a puree. To make the cocktail, you just stir together a couple tablespoons of the puree with vodka and sparkling water. It’s so easy, yet so festive!
The recipe as written will make about 6 cocktails, but you could easily puree enough cranberries for a crowd. For each 1 1/2 cups of cranberries that you add, add 2 more tablespoons of honey and 1/4 cup of water.
- 1½ cups fresh cranberries
- ¼ cup water
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1½ oz vodka, per drink
- fresh lime, cut into wedges, optional
- sparkling water
