  • 1 pitcher


  • 2 cups cranberry juice unsweetened -- chilled (100% juice)
  • 2 cups passion fruit chilled (or orange juice). If the juice is from frozen pulp, make sure to thaw it before measuring. NOTE: Either type of fruit juice is usually quite sweet! But you can still add sugar, simple syrup, or the sweetener of your choice to adjust the sweetness of your cocktail.
  • 1 cup vodka or gin
  • 1 ½ cups lime sparkling water chilled -- Other flavor options: Passion fruit, lemon, orange, or cranberry (or Ginger Ale or champagne -- If you prefer to use champagne instead of sparkling water, skip the vodka. However, it will be way less boozy).

  • Garnish suggestions: Fresh cranberries orange slices, mint leaves, rosemary sprigs, lime wedges or slices, or sugared cranberries.


  • Combine the juices and vodka in a pitcher and refrigerate. Before serving, gently stir in sparkling water and add ice.
