How to Make a Ginger-Cranberry Spritzer

We love kicking back with a glass of vino at the end of the day, but every now and then a cocktail sounds much more fun. Luckily, you don’t need to have a fully stocked bar or know your way around a shaker to make a damn good drink. Here's our recipe for a super-easy (and super-delicious) ginger-cran spritzer.

What You Need:
- Ice
- 1½ ounces vodka
- 2 ounces ginger beer
- Cranberry juice
- Slice of lime, for garnish

Step 1: Start with ice in a tall glass. Add the vodka and ginger beer.

Step 2: Top it off with cranberry juice and add a slice of lime for a finishing touch.
