Looking for some inspiration? How about a Christmas Martini for the call?


  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) vodka
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) 100% cranberry juice (not sweetened*)
  • ½ ounce (1 tablespoon) Cointreau
  • ½ ounce (1 tablespoon) lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons simple syrup or maple syrup
  • For the garnish: cranberries, rosemary sprig

How to make a Christmas martini (basic steps)

The Christmas martini is easy to make. All you’ll need is a cocktail shaker and a martini glass! If you’re making this for a crowd, you can also mix up 2 drinks at once in a single cocktail shaker. Here are the basic steps (or jump to the recipe):

  1. Shake: Add the vodka, cranberry juice, Cointreau, lemon juice, and simple syrup to the cocktail shaker. Shake for 15 seconds until cold.
  2. Strain: Strain the drink into a glass and serve!
  3. Garnish: Here’s the fun part! To make it look Christmas-y, use fresh cranberries and a rosemary sprig as a garnish. In these photographs, place the cranberries on a cocktail pick but you can also place them directly into the drink.

Happy Holidays everyone!
