How to Make a Madras Cocktail

Cocktails are often seen to be the most complex drinks but this is not the case with Madras cocktail, which is simple, easy to make yet a delicious treat.

This refreshing vodka cocktail presents a mouth-watering mixture of orange juice, cranberry juice, and vodka. While preparing Madras cocktail, the only thing that one should keep in mind is the choice and quality of ingredients and that is all which matters in any simplified cocktail recipe. Best thing is to go for good yet cheap vodka. It is better to use freshly squeezed orange juice in order to enhance the taste of the drink.

The tricky part of the recipe is the selection of cranberry juice. Most of the people usually go for cranberry cocktail juice because the original cranberry juice contains tannic and tart taste. It is highly recommended to get fresh cranberry juice, sweetened with normal sugar to add some extra element of taste to your Madras cocktail. Sea Breeze and Bay Breeze are the variants of Madras cocktail.
