The Madras cocktail is a tangy and refreshing, starring vodka, cranberry and orange juice. Everyone should know how to make this quick and easy drink!


  • 1 1/2 ounces* vodka
  • 2 ounces 100% unsweetened cranberry juice (do not use sweetened!)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or simple syrup**
  • 1 1/2 ounces fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 lime wedge (plus additional for garnish)


  1. Fill a glass with ice. Pour in the vodka, cranberry juice and syrup and stir with bar spoon.
  2. Pour in the orange juice and squeeze the lime wedge on top. Garnish with an additional lime.


*To convert to tablespoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons

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