  • 3 cl Citron Vodka
  • 3 cl Cointreau
  • 4.5 cl Cranberry Juice
  • 1.5 cl Lime Juice
  • 1 dash Orange bitters

Process: Shake everything with ice and strain into glass

Difford’s ratio.
Nicely balanced Cranberry / Citrus drink. You can use normal vodka, but it seems a bit too sweet without it. Might be fixable with a bit more Lime. Difford’s mention that he prefer normal vodka when using Good quality Cranberry juice.

IDEA: Try out some of the other variants from Difford’s, H2D or Liq.Int (p.130)

For some reason I missed the lime when reading the recipe. Would have helped a lot in this one.
