A friend posted a juice recipe that sounded very delicious and quite healthy.  Well, leave it to me to make it into something perhaps a little less “healthy” – but definitely more “festive”.  You’ll need a juicer for this one – but the extra delicious flavor is definitely worth the extra effort.  Cheers!
1 cup cranberries
2 oranges
2 carrots
3 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Simple Syrup
Juice of half a lime
Make the simple syrup by bringing ½ cup water to a boil; add ½ cup sugar.  Stir until completely dissolved; allow to cool.
Juice the cranberries, oranges and carrots.  Strain mixture into a jar or large measuring cup.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.  Add 3 ounces of the juice mixture, 3 ounces of vodka, juice from half a lime and 1 ounce simple syrup.  Shake vigorously.
Pour into two chilled martini glasses….. Relax, Sip and Enjoy!
