Amaretto- Cranberry Kisses

I'm not a drinky drink kinda person. Give me my wine, and I'm a happy camper... but I absolutely LOVE this cocktail. It doesn't taste overwhelmingly like alcohol, which is good, but dangerous!

Yield: 8 cocktails

Prep Time: 15 min + chill time


2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup amaretto
3 Tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
ice cubes
clementines, peeled, separated into segments for garnish, optional


1. Mix cranberry juice, vodka, amaretto, and orange juice in pitcher. Cover and chill until ready to serve. (You can do this 1 day ahead- keep refrigerated).

2. To make 2 drinks: fill cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour in 1 cup vodka mixture. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 martini glasses. Garnish each with clementine segment, if desired. Repeat 3 times with ice cubes, remaining vodka mixture and clementine segments.
