Christmas Spirits Martini

My husband Ron invented this drink only moments ago! I’m blogging it because: 
The glass is titled because I could mot hold it
stairght... srtarigth ... STRAIGHT.


(1) It’s easy and delicious 
(2) Ron has already taken a photo of the finished product 
(3) I can remember the ingredient proportions even though I’m blitzed 
(4) I can take credit for this drink despite having nothing to do with its creation.

Christmas Spirits Martini:

3 oz. (90 mL) vodka, chilled 
1/2 oz. (15 mL) orange-flavored liqueur, chilled (Ron insists Grand Marnier is the best choice for this recipe) 
Cranberry juice, as required to top up 2 glasses

Chill glasses in freezer. Combine all ingredients in a martini shaker. Shake-shake-shake, discarding ice. Serves 2.

Note to Karin, who wrote the comment below: Ron originally made this superb drink to serve lil ol me. I had a single drink and passed out. (And yes, I did indeed post this recipe at 6 a.m. If our chandelier weren’t so poorly bolted to the ceiling, I’d swing from it). So - with the addition of more cranberry juice - this great recipe now serves 2!
