The Bay Breeze cocktail pairs the tropical flavor of pineapple with vodka and cranberry juice. It’s an easy mixed drink you can make in minutes!



  • 3 tablespoons 100% pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons vodka
  • 6 tablespoons 100% unsweetened cranberry juice (do not use sweetened or cocktail)
  • 1 teaspoons maple syrup or simple syrup*
  • 1 lime wedge


  1. Add the pineapple juice and vodka to a glass and stir. Fill the glass with ice.
  2. In a shot glass or small pitcher, combine the cranberry juice and syrup* and stir.
  3. To make a layered drink look, tip the glass of pineapple juice slightly and pour the cranberry mixture along side of glass so that it can glide to bottom. (See How to Make a Layered Drink.) Otherwise, just pour in the cranberry and maple and stir.
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.


*If all you can find is sweetened cranberry juice / cranberry juice cocktail, omit the syrup.
