Cranberry vodka and blood orange juice... what else?

I have cranberry infused vodka and blood orange juice. The two together are pretty good, but I feel like it's an ingredient or two away from greatness. Ideas?

  1. Yum - lucky you! How about a splash of Cointreau? Or Grand Marnier? Or, if the blood orange juice is really sweet, how about a bit of Campari to "tart" it up?


      1. Try Charbay vodka - the blood orange & red grapfruit are incredibly flavorful. I'm not one for flavored vodka, but these are excellent. Excellent straight on the rocks - no need for a fruit mixer.

        1. Schwepps Bitter Lemon and a collins glass full of ice.

          1. How about some fresh muddled mint? Or some Lichido Lychee Liqueur? Or a dash of Leblon Cachaca and ginger syrup?

            1. Fresh lime juice, and you are there! (may need a dash of simple syrup if too tart).

              1. Combine equal parts blood orange juice and cranberry vodka in a champagne flute, then fill with Prosecco.
