Ingredient Notes and Shopping Tips
Use your favorite. I like the brand Pinnacle. A flavored vodka such as Citrus, Pomegranate, or Berry would also be tasty.
I used Ocean Spray's Cranberry juice cocktail for this recipe. If you want a slightly less traditional version, Cran-Raspberry would also be yummy!
: Use fresh lime juice for the best results. It's so much better than those little plastic limes!
: Sparkling water such as La Croix could also be used here if you don't regularly keep Club Soda in your home. Soda pop like Sprite can also be used.
Make ice cubes using Cranberry juice to avoid watering down your drink.
Get the most juice from your fruit
: Limes can be tough to squeeze, but here’s how to make it easier and get the most juice possible.
Roll it on the counter
: Rolling your lime will loosen the flesh a bit.
Heat it Up
: If your lime is fresh out of the fridge,it’ll be harder to squeeze. If you don’t want to put it in the microwave, leave it on your counter for a few hours before using it.
Use a citrus press:
A citrus press will do the squeezing for you

Multiply your ingredients by your number of guests and serve in a pitcher instead.
