cranberry cocktail garnished with rosemary sprig

Sparkling Cranberry Cocktail recipe

Toast to the season with a Sparkling Cranberry Cocktail! This holiday vodka drink is crafted with rosé hard cider and fresh cranberries.

  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 1 drink 1x




  1. Fill 12 oz glass with crushed ice. Pour vodka into a glass. Then top with hard cider and cranberry juice.
  2. Place sugar on a small plate and rinse cranberries off. Roll them in the sugar to coat, then add them to drink along with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
  3. Serve.


  • If you don't have Apple Juice Vodka, you can use regular vodka and add more cranberry juice or a splash of apple juice instead.
  • We really like the taste of hard cider in this recipe, but you can always substitute champagne, Prosecco, or sparkling wine for extra sparkle.
  • No need for a cocktail shaker! Layering the ingredients tastes great!
  • For a very Christmas cocktail look: roll both the cranberries and rosemary sprigs in sugar.
