SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass. (Be sure to use naturally sweetened cranberry drink rather than “juice” sweetened with sugar.)

The cranberry juice you select and even some vodkas may introduce unwanted sugar into this cocktail, so choose judiciously. We’ve used Agave Sec as our orange liqueur due to its being exclusively sweetened with agave nectar.
