What is the difference between all of the different cranberry juices?
Cranberry juice that is labeled as 100% juice is a blend of 4 different juices to give it some sweetness but it is all juice.
Cranberry cocktail is the OG and is cranberry juice that has been sweetened and it is what we use in the Cape Cod Drink.
Unsweetened Cranberry Juice is 100% cranberry juice without any added sugars.
Organic Unsweetened Cranberry Juice is 100% cranberry juice without any added sugars but is much paler in color than nonorganic juice so your drink will be a different color.
Choose your vodka wisely. You don't need to use the highest quality of vodka like you would in a martini, but please go a step above rail quality. Your head will thank you in the morning. Absolut, Titos, and Grey Duck are some of our favoritesThe standard ratio of alcohol to mixers is 1 part alcohol to 3 parts mixer. Looking for a lighter drink? Add a splash of club soda. If you like your drink a little stiffer, simply add a touch more vodka and pare down the cranberry juice.
