Tips To Make Madras Drink
✅ One important tip is that your choice of Cranberry juice is equally as important as the Vodka itself.
✅ If you are going for bottled Cranberry juice that is sweeter, your Cocktail is also sweeter and light pink in color. This may not be a big problem if you are ok with your drink being sweet.
✅ However, if you would like to have a true vodka-cranberry drink that is unsweetened, go for freshly made cranberry juice. You can also add sweet to this to the level you want with Simple syrup.
✅ And the color is brighter as well with unsweetened fresh cranberry juice.
✅ Also, make the Orange juice fresh, as it gives a fresh taste, than bottled juices.
✅ Serve them Cold by preparing the cocktail well ahead of time before a party, so your friends can have them as a Punch.
✅ Of course, you can add Club Soda or Sparkling water to make it Sparkling, just as good for occasions.
Of course, you could make countless cocktails with any given ingredients. And it all depends on what you want to taste and how you want to have it.
