.Crantini.

This cocktail recipe is actually for a special request I had when I did this post on making your own infused Cranberry-Lime Vodka. 
I know a few people are making the vodka and giving them out as Christmas gifts {awesome idea!} over the holiday season and what better way to dress up your infused vodka, than by adding a cute christmas tag with a recipe for Crantini's!
So, here you go new Friend. I hope this is what you were looking for :)
Crantini's
{I adapted the recipe below, but the original can be found here}
Ingredients:
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1 1/2 oz. Cranberry-Lime Infused vodka {OR regular Vodka}
4 oz. Cranberry juice
Ice
1 tbsp Frozen Limeade Concentrate {OPTIONAL, but recommended}
Directions:
1} Throw all ingredients into a martini shaker with ice, and shake well. Strain the ice cubes and serve in a cute martini glass garnished with cranberries floating it or a lime peel curl.

  2. Made mine today and can't wait for 2 weeks to get here. If it is as wonderful as I think it will be, then I will be giving some great little gifts for Thanksgiving company.

  7. I made the infused vodka 4 days ago. It looked so beautiful the first day. As the days progress, the cranberries are starting to look brownish and the lime rind not so vibrant. It's making me wonder, do I need to put it in the refrigerator? I can't imagine what the cranberries/lime rind will look like in two weeks.
