"I had this cranberry martini recipe at a holiday party and everyone loved it. The cranberry juice mixes nicely with the liquor. It's a perfect smooth drink."

I have served these at two parties now to rave reviews. So refreshing! The only danger is it is easy to have too many! I would suggest playing with the amounts a few times before serving to guests. My first few were way to strong and the flavor was bitter, we ended up cutting the liquor almost in half and it was much better. We also made these in small pitchers so everyone could self-serve and it worked well.
I will not make this again following this recipe. It tasted watered down and barely like cranberry. To make this drinkable, I had to add undiluted frozen cranberry juice, fresh lemon juice, and a bit of simple syrup.
I am a diehard cosmopolitan drinker, and thought this one sounded good so I gave it a try. I used cran/raspberry juice and added a bit more juice than called for (2.5oz) and loved it! Cheers and thanks for the recipe.
Beware! This cocktail is smooth and potent. I think this drink maybe better than a Cosmo. I decreased the vodka and increased the cranberry juice. It was DIVINE!
Very similar to a Cosmo. We enjoyed it. I added 3 ounces of juice and added a bit more alcohol than stated just to make up for the extra juice. It was tasty, refreshing, but potent.
I made this in a large pitcher for a party and it was delicious- I added more cranberries juice, but it was still potent! Everyone loved it (including the guys) and wanted more but I ran out of cranberry juice.
So yummy - I doubled the amount of cranberry juice so they wouldn't be too strong and got rave reviews from my guests. This will certainly be added to my drink catalog!
Great! I used cranberry vodka and cranberry/pomegranate juice for even better results. Garnished with cranberries and a twist of lime for a red and green holiday look. Very nice-thanks!
