• 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup amaretto
  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Clementines, peeled, separated into segments

Why not enjoy this bright red, wintery drink that is perfectly appropriate for Valentine’s day. Amaretto and cranberry juice are an unlikely match, but highly compatible, and this vibrant cocktail tastes smooth, tart, and not too sweet – almost a perfect balance.

Directions:

  1. Mix cranberry juice, vodka, amaretto, and orange juice in pitcher. Cover and chill until ready to serve. DO AHEAD: Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.
  2. To make 2 drinks, fill cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour in scant 1 cup vodka mixture. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 martini glasses. Garnish each with clementine segment. Repeat 3 times with ice cubes, remaining vodka mixture, and clementine segments.
