Refreshing Berry Martini Cocktail Recipe

Refreshing Berry Martini Cocktail Recipe by LivingLocurto.com

Summer calls for something sweet and cold to drink! My new favorite drink recipe is a simple berry drink made with fruit juices.

This recipe is very easy and yummy for anyone who prefers sweet cocktails over beer or wine. Make a mocktail for the kids, or add some vodka if you prefer to create a summer cocktail with a little kick!

Lemon Drop Cocktail Sugar - Living Locurto

I like to use this Lemon Drop cocktail sugar. It’s really yummy!

Ingredients:

  • Grape Juice
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Limes
  • Sierra Mist Natural
  • Sugar (for glass rim)
  • Vodka (Regular or Rasberry) – Optional

Directions: (recipe makes 2 drinks)

1) Combine the following ingredients into a cocktail shaker or jar:

  • Ice
  • 1 ounce Grape Juice
  • 1 ounce Cranberry Juice
  • 1 to 1 1/2 ounce of Vodka (optional) Try Rasberry Vodka for a different taste.
  • Juice of half of a fresh lime (use the other half for garnish).

2) Shake and strain into a sugar rimmed martini or wine glass halfway full. (Use a lime to coat the edge of a glass and dip in a plate of sugar.)

3) Fill the rest of the glass with chilled Sierra Mist Natural.

4) Garnish with a lime.

Yum! I’m sure this drink has a “real” name. I was just using items that I had in my kitchen to make something sweet and thought I would share it with you.

Add less grape juice if you prefer your drinks not so sweet. This would be super easy to make in a pitcher for parties too.

Happy Summer!

  1. What does the Sierra Mist add? Does it make it a little “fizzy” or does it just add flavor?
