The vodka cranberry might be the easiest cocktail ever, starring vodka and cranberry juice! Here’s how to make this tart drink, also called a Cape Codder.


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


  1. Fill a glass with crushed ice. Pour in the vodka, cranberry juice and syrup and stir with bar spoon.
  2. Squeeze the lime wedge on top, then add it to the drink as a garnish.


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