Cran-Grape Fruitinirita ….. hmmm perhaps this cocktail needs a better name

I thought a fruity cocktail would be delicious after work today.  I suppose this is sort of margarita meets martini / cosmopolitan type drink.  There is something magical that happens when you begin mixing clear liquors together; each on its own can be overwhelming but combine one or two and yummy drinks can happen.  I like the cran-grape juice but I am sure fruit punch or any fruity juice would be good.  The better the quality of ingredients the better it will turn out.

  • 3/4 o.z. vodka
  • 3/4 o.z. rum
  • 3/4 o.z. triple sec
  • 3/4 o.z. gin
  • 1 1/2 o.z. cran-grape juice
  • 3 o.z. mountain dew or sprite
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp simple syrup

Combine all ingredients in a shaker over ice; shake well and serve in a chilled martini glass. (To make simple syrup mix 1 part sugar to 2 parts water.)

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
