Get ready for a little Christmas cheer with a Christmas cranberry martini.
This Christmas cranberry martini is a light and fruity cocktail that looks so festive for the holidays, especially when served with a candy cane stirrer and fresh cranberries.
Every Christmas Eve my family gets together at my sister’s house, and my sister and I plan a signature martini to serve. A few of our favorites are:
We are both fans of cosmos, so I know this cranberry martini will be a hit! It’s quick and easy to make so we can spend time catching up, rather than in the kitchen. 🙂
I’m sharing this drink recipe as part of #cranberryweek with a great group of bloggers.

Ingredients Needed For Christmas Cranberry Martini
- 1.5 ounce vodka
- 2 ounces cranberry juice
- 1 ounce vermouth
- 1 ounce triple sec
- fresh cranberries
Simply add all the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass.
You can add a sugar rim if you like, or even crushed candy canes. I like to freeze the cranberries so they keep the martini nice and chilled.
Add a fun candy cane to use as a stir stick and enjoy!
