5 min




  • 3 oz Toddi Small Batch Vodka

  • 1 tbsp. cranberry juice

  • 1 tbsp. cranberry jalapeño syrup

  • jalapeño slices

  • cranberries


Combine vodka, cranberry juice and cranberry syrup* to a shaker with ice. Shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass or cocktail glass of your choice (you can rim the glass with sugar if you would like it sweeter). Garnish with sliced jalapeños and cranberries if desired.


*To make cranberry jalapeño syrup: In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup of sugar, ½ cup cranberry juice, ½ cup of cranberries and 1 teaspoon of diced jalapeño (feel free to add more if you love spicy drinks). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Strain, discarding cranberries and jalapeño. Cover and refrigerate syrup for at least 2 hours or until chilled.
