Polished Princess Cocktail

by GreatMeals

Who has leftover cranberries from thanksgiving?  Us 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️  So we made this tasty cocktail – called The Polished Princess!  Thanks @thespruceeats for the recipe!  It’s a great one if you love fruity (and a bit tart) drinks that are foamy 🍹 – which is right up our alley! 

For those who look at the recipe and think vanilla vodka will be too sweet, we first thought so too, but don’t worry! The sweetness of the vodka perfectly balances out the tart and sour notes from the cranberries and lemon to make this fun holiday drink. 

We modified the original recipe to make it a little bit more fruit-forward, as well as a little less sweet.  We also substituted the ingredients with what we had at home to make the deliciousness you see here.
