Cape Codder Drink: Tart cranberry juice and smooth vodka make this cocktail ultra refreshing. So easy, it requires 2 minutes and 4 ingredients!
If you’re not a fan of overly sweet cocktails, the Cape Codder just might be your jam! It has crisp vodka, tart cranberry juice, and refreshing lime juice.
It is also such a gorgeous color! How can this not remind you of beach sunsets?
I like enjoying these at BBQs, and on the back porch after dinner.
This recipe makes once drink, but feel free to double or triple it. It’d also be awesome in a pitcher!
