Sometimes, simple is best, and that's what this week's cocktail is all about!

Before we get started, remember there's only 2 weeks left to enter to win a trip to see Lady Gaga live in Sweden next month, courtesy of Absolut!

So what's on the menu this weekend? The Absolut Mandrin Madras, an easy twist on a classic cocktail!


  • 2 oz. Absolut Mandrin vodka
  • 1 oz. cranberry juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • lime wedge (to garnish)

Combine all ingredients over ice in a highball glass. (Make it pretty by pouring the orange juice in first, then slowly pouring the cranberry over it to get a layered drink.)

Switch it up:

Use a different flavored vodka like Absolut Cherrykran.
Use more or less orange or cranberry juice to suit your tastes.
