Try these vibrant tropical cocktails with goodness of cranberries.
Cocktails with cranberries are usually a hit. However, cranberry juice and fresh cranberries can be used for much more than just mixing with vodka. It goes nicely with just about every other fruit and any type of liquor you can think of. Some of the tastiest mixed drinks are made with this vibrant red juice. They have a bright colour and a sweet-tart flavour. From the elegant bright pink Cosmopolitan to the laid-back Sea Breeze to the no-frills Vodka Cranberry, there's something for everyone. Because raw cranberries are hard, sour, and bitter, nearly all of them are processed and turned into cranberry juice and sauce. Dried and sweetened varieties are also available. Cranberry juice is sometimes sweetened or combined with other fruit liquids to mask its tartness. Cranberries are usually cooked into a compote or jelly, which is called cranberry sauce. Fresh cranberries can be preserved at home for up to nine months and used straight from the freezer in recipes. Cranberry juice is used in various alcoholic cocktails, including the Cosmopolitan.
Here are some cocktails you can make with cranberry juice
Cranberry juice is the ingredient you need to make a margarita throughout the cooler months of the year. The fruit is added to the basic margarita formula to give it a seasonal twist in the cranberry margarita recipe. You'll also like how it complements the handmade apple-cinnamon tequila.
The cosmopolitan is the other well-known cranberry juice drink. The highlight of the modern martini menu is this fruity martini, which is a lot of fun to experiment with. When summer is in full swing, make a delightful watermelon cranberry cosmo by adding a shot of watermelon liqueur to the recipe. On a hot day, it's deliciously sweet, refreshing, and an amazing treat.
With these bright and vibrant cranberry mojitos, it's time to get the party started! This delicious beverage has the right combination of sweet, tart, and minty flavours. This recipe is surprisingly simple to prepare. Your delightful cocktail is complete with a simple blend of cranberry syrup, lime juice, white rum, and fresh mint.
A light and pleasant drink, the sea breeze is ideal for the summer. It became popular in the 1980s and is still popular today. I understand why. In this delightful summer cocktail, vodka is combined with cranberry juice and grapefruit juice. This drink has a beachy flavour that will transport you to the breezy seashores with every sip you take.
Cranberry Moscow Mule
With a dash of cranberry, the classic Moscow Mule is elevated to a whole new level. A Moscow Mule is a cocktail made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a lime wedge. It has a malty flavour with a hint of lime and a warming heat from the ginger. Adding a splash of cranberry juice to the cocktail changes, not just the colour but also the flavour. It retains all of the great flavours while adding a fruity touch. Cranberry makes it a perfect tangy cocktail that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
