Mary Guaragna: Hi! My name is Mary Guaragna with MGB Special Events located in Arlington, Virginia. I am a professional bartender and today I am showing you how to make some wonderfully unique holiday drinks for your holiday parties.
Now, I am going to show you how to make a Cranberry Martini. These are the ingredients that we re going to use. We ll need vodka, cranberry juice, some dry vermouth, a chilled martini glass, a shot glass, a shaker and some lemon twists for garnish. Now, let s get started on our Cranberry Martini.
We are going to take our shaker; put some ice in it, so that we can chill our wonderful cocktail. We re going to use two ounces of vodka. We re going to use an ounce of cranberry juice. For instructional purposes, I ve poured it into a glass to make it easier to pour and here we re and we ll need a half an ounce of dry vermouth. Okay. get that all in our shaker. Shake it about ten times. Alright.
We re going to pour out our ice water for a wonderful chilled glass and strain it into a martini glass, nice festive color. Now, you could garnish this with cranberries also, but today we re going to use a lemon twist, just gently put it in there.
That s how we make a wonderful Cranberry Martini for your next holiday party. Enjoy!
