When it comes to festive holiday drinks, this easy cranberry orange cocktail is surely a favorite in our home. Cranberries and oranges that are in season now have sweet-tart flavor, especially when they’re fresh.

For this simple but festive cocktail I use freshly squeezed orange juice and bottled cranberry juice. A really good vodka such as Kettle One and triple sec gives it a nice kick. Fresh orange slices go on top as garnish. Either whole or half slices will work here depending on your preference. And you can also add a few fresh cranberries as garnish.

For the glasses, I like using old fashioned glasses for this cocktail because of their size. They’re not too big or too small. I also put ice cubes half-full in the glass, but if you want more ice, fill it all the way to the top.

For this holiday our celebration will be simple but festive. I know we can’t be with all our relatives at this time but let’s make the most of it. Happy Holidays!
