Use a high quality pear vodka (we used Grey Goose) for this, the drink is delicate, easy to make and will satisfy so many palates. You can make it strong and martini-like or add a bit more juice for something less intense, both are excellent.

    Hi, Did you use cranberry juice cocktail or unsweetened cranberry juice? Thanks, sound so refreshing! Suzi

      Cranberry juice cocktail. You can use unsweetened cranberry juice if you like, but you will probably need to add a little honey, agave or simple syrup to balance things out.
