Cranberry Martini Recipe

Happy Hour: Cranberry Mint Martini

Now that Thanksgiving is officially behind us, it's time to get in the holiday spirit. There's no better way to do it than with a refreshing and festive homemade cocktail. This cranberry mint martini is potent but easy to sip with a beautifully vibrant hue. It's well-balanced and not too sweet. The ingredient list calls for cranberry vodka, but if you don't have it, regular vodka is a fine substitute. It's the perfect tippler to enjoy after a long day of shopping, so get the recipe.
