What is a Orange and Cranberry Vodka Cocktail?

Don’t Have Triple Sec? Try This!

For your mixture you can use any orange liquor, not just triple sec. So if you have a preference don’t be afraid to switch them out. You can also consider buying orange vodka as well if you want more of an orange taste.

Other Substitution Ideas

Soda water can be purchased or made with a soda stream if you have one.

When it comes to garnish you can use lemons, orange slices, cranberries, or even limes! Whatever fruit you desire or you can scratch the garnish all together.

Frozen fruit is also always an option for adding to a drink since it works on adding flavor but also keeping your drink nice and cold without watering it down.

If you are looking to add more of an orange punch to this drink try adding some orange juice to your drink! It will bring out the flavor even more.

Let’s Make an Orange Cranberry Mocktail

If you are having company over you may want to consider making a mocktail version of our Orange and Cranberry cocktail.

To create your mocktail, omit your vodka for more soda water. This will give your drink an extra fizzy taste.

For replacing your triple sec simply use orange juice instead. This will create a delicious mocktail everyone is sure to enjoy and want more. You can also replace your vodka with non-alcoholic vodka if you want a taste closer to the original cocktail. It’s always nice to have on hand for future drinks as well.
