Mandarin Madras Cocktail

Since St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching, merely being tomorrow, and in honor of the Irish tradition of drinking on this day (I’m Irish as well), I’ll give you the recipe of the cocktail I’m going to mix for the occasion. It’s called a Mandarin Madras.

The ingredients you will need will be vodka, orange juice (pulp free), cranberry juice, and a lime. In a tall glass filled with ice, pour one part vodka (I use Smirnoff Orange, recipe calls for Absolut Mandarin), two parts orange juice, and two parts cranberry juice in that order.  Garnish with a lime slice.

It tastes amazing and is really fruity. It is refreshing for any time of day and would be great in summer as well as winter and in between.

What it’s supposed to look like (if you know how):
