We're in the middle of that weird week between Christmas and New Year's where the days sort of just blend together and there are plenty of leftovers and desserts to snack on. New Year's Eve is just around the corner and you want to make something to celebrate that's easy and delicious. I've got you covered!
These Cranberry Orange Cocktails are the perfect festive holiday treat. They combine orange juice, cranberry juice, simple syrup, and vodka for a refreshing and delicious drink. The citrus flavor from the orange juice works well with the tart cranberry juice and the simple syrup helps sweeten it up a little bit for the perfect balance.
Not to mention, this drink is super easy to make and comes together in just a few minutes. All you need to do is add ice to a cocktail shaker followed by the orange juice, cranberry juice, simple syrup, and vodka. Shake well and pour into your glass.
To make the orange peel twist, cut a long rectangular piece of peel and carefully use a knife to cut away any of the white pulp so it is as flexible as possible. Gently twist this peel until it curls slightly. If it is hard to twist, it is probably too thick and needs to be cut down more. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.
