Cranberry Vodka Slush

Since the heat doesn’t want to quit, we’ve done a ‘cool’ spin on the classic vodka cranberry.

  • 4 cups Spiced Cranberry Juice (recipe below)
  • 2 cups J.T. Meleck vodka
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • Top with Lemon Lime Soda


  1. Add cranberry juice, ginger, cinnamon sticks and nutmeg to a saucepan.
  2. Simmer, on low, for approximately 45 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool completely.
  4. Strain into a mason jar


  1. Make the spiced cranberry juice per the directions above (best to make the day before)
  2. In a large pitcher, add cranberry juice, vodka, orange and lime juice.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Pour into doubled up Ziplock bags or another freezer-safe container.
  5. Freeze overnight or at least 4 hours.
  6. Let thaw for 10 minutes before serving (depends on how slushy you want it).
  7. Place about ½ cup of frozen vodka slush into a glass.
  8. Top with lemon-lime soda.
  9. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

Cheers! and Enjoy!
