Orange Cranberry Vodka Cocktail Ingredients
- Cranberry Juice - Cocktail or 100% Juice, use what you normally reach for other drinks. I prefer 100% juice but had a bottle of juice cocktail and it turned out just fine.
- Orange Juice - For the orange juice, you can squeeze the juice from one orange or use it straight from the bottle of OJ you have in the fridge. I would recommend pulp-free orange juice if you are buying juice.
- Mandarin Vodka - The orange-flavored vodka is a must. You have to use this or it will leave the cocktail just a little bit less. Absolut vodka is my favorite mandarin vodka.
- Raspberry or Cranberry Vodka - Now this is probably not a must but if you stock raspberry or cranberry vodka, use a little of this too. If you don't have it you can just use all mandarin vodka. Again, Absolut comes through with great raspberry vodka.
- Crushed Ice or Nugget Ice - My nugget ice machine is my ride or die item in my life.
