Fall Cocktail Bazaar: Cranberry Lime Fresher

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 14, 2018

This is the second cocktail in my Fall Cocktail Bazaar and like the first one shared last week, it has been created with one of the new Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer premium malt beverages. These malt beverages contain natural flavours, zero added sugar, no artificial sweeteners, and no preservatives. They have been produced as a more healthy alternative to traditional vodka premixes. This week I am working with Smirnoff Cranberry Lime Spiked Sparkling Seltzer which features light flavours of cranberry and lime within the malty flavour of the spiked seltzer.

Cranberry and Lime is of course the winning combination of flavours found in the modern classic cocktail, the Cosmopolitan. So my thought was to work within that framework to create a tall refreshing alternative. I call my cocktail, the Cranberry Lime Fresher.

Cranberry Lime Fresher

1 oz. Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1/2 oz. Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
Smirnoff Cranberry Lime Spiked Sparkling Seltzer
Lime for Garnish

Add the Smirnoff Vodka, Triple Sec, Cranberry juice and Lime juice into a metal shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Pour the chilled contents into a serving glass with ice
Lengthen with Smirnoff Cranberry Lime Spiked Sparkling Seltzer
Garnish with a slice of lime

Enjoy Responsibly!
