- Total Time:
- 3 minutes
Step 1: You will need:
- 40 ml vodka
- 10 ml orange liqueur
- 10 ml cranberry juice
- 1 medium lime
- 1 medium orange
- 1 martini glass
- 1 cocktail shaker
- 1 25 ml (1 fl oz) single shot measure
- 1 50 ml (2 fl oz) double shot measure
- 1 ice
- 1 knife
- 1 chopping board
- 1 cocktail strainer
- 1 mixing glass
Step 2: Chill the martini glass
Fill the martini glass with ice and leave to cool while you prepare your drink
Step 3: Add the ingredients
Add 40ml of vodka, and 10 ml of Orange liqueur.
Then add 10ml of cranberry juice.
Step 4: Lime
Cut a lime in half, and divide one half in to 4 wedges.
Squeeze 2 wedges over the mixing glass, and drop them in.
Step 5: Ice
Get rid of the ice from your martini glass,
And fill up the mixing glass with fresh ice. Always do this last so you don’t dilute your cocktail.
Step 6: Shake
Put the top half of the cocktail shaker on, pressing down firmly to seal. Hold the top and bottom and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds .
When there is condensation on the outside of the shaker and it feels very cold, then it’s mixed.
Step 7: Release
Tap the side of the shaker and release the top by rocking it back and forth.
Step 8: Pour it out
Put the cocktail strainer over the shaker, push it forward so you don’t get any shards of ice in your drink, and pour in to the martini glass.
Step 9: Garnish
To garnish use an orange twist. Cut a thin slice of peel and use the knife to remove the pith â€“ then cut into an even strip.
Run the orange around the lip of the glass, twist it over the drink, and drop it in.
