  • 1/2 lime, chopped
  • 30mL vodka
  • 60mL cranberry juice
  • 10mL lime juice
  • Crushed ice
  • Orange zest


Muddle (I believe this is the appropriate verb for this task) chopped lime in glass. Pour vodka, cranberry juice and lime juice into glass. Top with crushed ice and orange zest.


  • An oldie, but a goodie...the cranberry juice and limes are the perfect Christmas colours!
  • I don't have a cocktail shaker (so we have our Cosmopolitans stirred, not shaken), but certainly make use of it if you have one.
  • Serve with Parmesan pastry wreaths or Spicy macadamias and cashews
