1

oz (1 shot) cranberry juice (no sugar added)

  • 1

    In a martini shaker, add 5-8 cubes of ice.

  • 2

    Add in one ounce lemonade and one ounce cranberry juice. Be sure you use the non-sweetened cranberry juice. It's tartness will be a good balance to mask the heavy vodka taste.

  • 3

    Add in 2+ ounces of vodka. Cover shaker and mix for 30 seconds.

  • 4

    Take off martini shaker top and pour martini into glass (without the ice). Add a dash more juice if too strong.

  • 5

    Optional - garnish with lemon wedge.

Cranberry Lemon Drop Martini

Keeping some fresh cranberries in the house this holiday season might be a lifesaver for you. From delicious cranberry bars that you can make in a hurry and cut up for guests, to this festive and fruity Cranberry Lemon Drop martini. Cranberries will have your belly perfectly content and happy no matter what madness is taking place.

This cocktail is the epitome of simple. A few fresh ingredients is all it takes for you to have it ready for guests or friends that you might be having over for the New Year.


For this yummy libation, I used cranberry juice, the sweetened one, not the unsweetened! You won’t like your drink if you use unsweetened cranberry juice! We added fresh-squeezed lemon juice, gin, and Cointreau.

I poured all of the ingredients into a small pitcher and placed it in the fridge. Right when our guests pulled their car up (no joke!), I brought it out and poured half into a cocktail shaker with ice.

I shook that for 20 seconds and strained into a coupe or martini glass. Then I shook the second half and repeated. It won’t all fit into the shaker at once (unless you have a huge shaker!), so you have to do it twice.


Use unsweetened cranberry juice! Or skip the simple syrup

This Christmas martini uses unsweetened 100% cranberry juice to make its beautifully brilliant color. But be careful when you shop: it’s easy to find sweetened cranberry juice too. Here’s what to know about the two types:

  • Sweetened cranberry juice is sometimes labeled as cranberry juice cocktail. This type of cranberry juice has added sugars and sometimes high-fructose corn syrup as sweetener. It is the kind used for classic cranberry cocktails of the past, like the Vodka Cranberry and others.
  • 100% cranberry juice is now easily available at your local grocery store. The benefit of this type? The color is brighter and you can sweeten your drink to taste. We use this type for all our cranberry cocktails.

What if all you can find is sweetened? Use half of the simple syrup in the recipe below — or even add it to taste.


Fresh Strawberry Lemon Drop Martini

  • 2 shots Ketel One Citroen Vodka
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (fresh Meyer lemons are best)
  • 2 or 3 fresh strawberries, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Baker’s (extra-fine) Sugar
  • (extra sugar for rimming glass)

Place the chopped strawberries in a small ramekin or cup and crush with the tines of a fork, then stir in 1 teaspoon of sugar. Set aside for about 4 or 5 minutes.

Rub the edge of a martini glass with half a lemon, then dip rim in a bowl of extra fine sugar.

Fill a beverage shaker with ice and add the lemon juice, strawberries, the other teaspoon of sugar and the vodka. Close and shake 50 times, then pour through a small sieve into the prepared martini glass, using the back of a spoon to press the strawberry puree.

Garnish the strawberry lemon drop martini with a strawberry and lemon slice and repeat as needed because everyone’s going to want one! (A standard sized shaker can accommodate the ingredients for two drinks at a time.) Cheers!

What Makes a GREAT Pomegranate Martini Recipe.

This is the perfect cocktail with great flavor, plenty of pizzazz and easy on the wallet. The perfect Pomegranate Martini is sweet but not cloying. It needs some tartness from pomegranate and cranberry juice.

Ideally it has a good middle shelf lemon or citrus vodka. It also needs a nice Triple Sec but there is no need for a more expensive orange liquor such as Cointreau. In general I recommend skipping the Dekuyper in favor of the nicer Monarch Triple Sec (Hood River, Oregon.) Using a slightly better Triple Sec gives a lovely orange flavor without having to break out high end orange liquors.

Good Middle-shelf Vodka = GREAT Cocktail

You don’t need to go out and grab the Gray Goose for this one! Just pick a solid lemon flavored vodka that has a nice sweet flavor. Ideally this recipe will cost you about what 2-3 drinks would cost in a restaurant but you would get enough drinks to serve a party!

We sampled three different citrus vodkas in developing this recipe. Our favorite was the Swedish label, Svedka Citron Lemon Flavored Vodka. Usually my favorite lemon vodka is by 360 Vodka. However, their lemon is a bit too sweet for this drink. Some testers even used the word “syrupy” to describe it. I still think it makes the best Lemon Drop Martini but it is not a good fit for the Pom!

We gave the classic Smirnoff a spin too but it was not quite flavorful or sweet enough for the recipe.

How To Make a Big Batch of Pomegranate Martinis

This is a martini that can easily be made in a big batch! I suggest making it in multiples of four for easy math.

So plan on multiplying the ingredients by four to serve four people. Or by eight to serve eight people. You could also make 16 servings. You get the drift!

Having a party? Make a pitcher of martinis ahead and put in the fridge. Then you can shake and serve right from the pitcher!

Virgin Pomegranate Martini Variation

Got some younger guests or somebody who needs to skip the booze? No problem! Leave the vodka and triple sec out and use 2oz of club soda or 7Up instead. The 7UP will make a sweeter more kid friendly drink and club soda will make a less sweet, more grown up drink. Garnish these with a maraschino cherry if you like!

How To Juice a Pomegranate

If you want to juice your pomegranates go for it! However, it is a big extra step and it is easy to buy pomegranate juice ready to go! (Tip for batch martini makers – Costco sells Pomegranate juice in the refrigerated section!)

  1. Put the pomegranate seeds in a blender.
  2. Pulse the seeds several times. This breaks them up enough to release the juice.
  3. Put a sieve or mesh strainer over a container.
  4. Use the back of a spoon to gently press the seeds against the mesh until you have gotten as much juice as possible.

My Favorite Cocktails

Sure I love a glass of wine but my drink of choice is a nice cold, refreshing cocktail. These are a few of my favorites! If you came over, chances are good I would make you a Lemon Drop, a Pomegranate Martini, or a Watermelon Margarita!

What Kind of Cocktail Shaker Should You Buy.

There are two primary types of cocktail shaker. The first has been around forever – the top lifts off and then you pour. The 2nd has a top that screws on and is larger so you can shake several cocktails at once.

Pick the style you like – the biggest thing to consider is to make sure you get a high quality shaker that won’t freeze your hands or leak.

Blueberries are in season here in Florida and we actually just went to a local U Pick farm and got a bunch of these beautiful berries. Of course we will be making lots of blueberries smoothies, my Blueberry Delight Breakfast Casserole, Blueberry BBQ Sauce, Lemon Blueberry Bread and homemade blueberry vinaigrette but I decided a blueberry cocktail was also in order. I mean, when isn&rsquot a fresh and beautiful cocktail not in order?!

Blueberries are not only beautiful, but considered a super food, so why not add them to a cocktail?! Blueberries are naturally sweet so there is no need for added sweeteners to this Blueberry Lemon Martini.

I used fresh blueberry juice in this martini recipe. That means I actually &ldquomade&rdquo the juice myself. Which is actually really easy, don&rsquot get nervous. To make fresh blueberry juice you simply &ldquomuddle&rdquo the berries then pour the mixture over a mesh strainer so that you capture the juice.

What is muddling? Muddle is just a fancy word for smash. I put about a cup of blueberries into a large coffee cup and smashed them. I used my Pestle from my mortar and pestle set (typically used for grinding herbs) and it worked just fine, if you have a cocktail muddler that would work perfectly as well, and honestly I don&rsquot see why any spoon, fork or masher wouldn&rsquot work either.

I used approximately one cup of fresh blueberries to get 2 ounces of fresh blueberry juice for my Lemon Blueberry Vodka Martini.

I also used fresh lemon juice. Look at all the good fruits you are getting in this easy cocktail recipe!

Now here is how to make this Blueberry Lemon Drop Martini. Be sure to Print It and Pin It so that you can make it again and again.


The key to the best lemon drop martini is balancing sour and sweet. This is one of our absolute favorite cocktails to make at home. Read on below to see our tips for making it.

There are four things to keep in mind when making lemon drop martinis at home.

Use Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice. The juice from a bottle just won’t cut it here. For one cocktail, you will need 1 ounce of lemon juice or the juice from half a large lemon.

Use quality vodka. Since this is a martini, there’s quite a bit of vodka called for. You don’t need to go straight to the top shelf, but choose a vodka that’s smooth. A few of our favorites are Kettle One, Stolichnaya (Stoli), and Tito’s.

Everything should be really cold. A lukewarm martini is no fun, so be sure to shake the heck out of it — if you want to go the extra mile, chill the martini glasses, too.

Add a lemon sugar rim. You’ve probably noticed rim sugar sold at the store. They are a great idea, but honestly, much easier to make at home yourself. To make our lemon drops extra special, we add a simple lemon sugar rim to our glasses. You could certainly stick with plain sugar, but since you’ve already bought the lemons for the fresh lemon juice, you might as well whip up this zesty sugar, right? To make it, rub the zest of one lemon into granulated sugar. Easy!

One more thing — you’ll need simple syrup for this. You can buy simple syrup at the store for convenience, but it’s really easy to make at home.

Here’s our step-by-step instructions for how to make simple sugar. We made it in our recipe video, too — it only takes a few minutes.
