Ariana’s Cranberry Cosmo

4 lime wedges
5 Tbsp. vodka
1/2 Tbsp. simple syrup
Splash of cranberry juice
Fresh or frozen cranberries

Muddle lime wedges in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, simple syrup and cranberry juice; muddle to combine. Fill shaker with ice; cover and shake about 30 seconds. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with fresh or frozen cranberries.

Quick tip! When making drinks in a shaker, choose the biggest ice cubes your freezer will make —and don’t mix too long. “The more you shake, the more watered-down your final cocktail will be,” says Madix.
