Cranberry Sunrise

The Vodka Sunrise drink recipe is a lot like the Tequila Sunrise, only with vodka instead of tequila. Or you could think of it as a Screwdriver with a healthy amount of grenadine added in. The Vodka Sunrise is a great drink recipe to know. It’s easy to make, has a wonderful sweet and fruity flavor, and it even looks beautiful with that “sunrise” effect

Cranberry Sunrise

This beauty of a drink is inspired by the sunrise and makes an ideal brunch cocktail. Make a cranberry-orange purée and top with tequila and orange juice for a multi-colored and layered drink. Don't stir before serving — allow your guests to take in this winter cocktail's beauty before encouraging them to mix up their drinks.
