Looking for a great cranberry cocktail or a way to use up your left over cranberry juice or liquor? Browse these lists of cranberry cocktails to find the perfect one for you. The first list is the most extensive because it uses cranberry juice, which is an essential ingredient in any bar. Once you get past that one you will find a much shorter collection of recipes that use a cranberry-flavored liquor.

Cranberry Juice Cocktails:

Cranberry juice is one of the most popular cocktail mixers, one that is versatile enough to bring together a variety of flavors. Often, cranberry is that one key ingredient that is the finishing touch. A splash can be paired with tequila, whiskey, gin, vodka or rum and almost any flavor of liqueur.

Cranberry is probably best known as an essential in the popular Cosmopolitan and Cape Cod and if you want to experiment with your own cranberry cocktails, check out the fruit flavor pairings for some fresh ideas.

Cranberry Liquor Cocktails:

Cranberry-flavored liquors are not used as often as the juice in cocktails, though on occasion you will come across them and these recipes are the few in this collection that use them.

You can find a few great cranberry liqueurs that are available commercially, many of them come from small craft distilleries of cranberry-growing regions such as Clear Creek Distillery in Oregon. DeKuyper also makes a cranberry shnapps, or you can always make your own cranberry liqueur. Cranberry-flavored vodka is also seen from time to time and are produced by a number of vodka companies or can be a simple fruit infusion during cranberry season.

This collection of cocktail recipes is an ongoing project and is updated regularly.
