Cranberry Lemon Drop


Cranberries are a seasonal favorite (although, I could enjoy them any day of the year!) and mixed with lemons and vodka, you have quite the cocktail on your hands. My husband and I typically enjoy a calm night at home; however, we’re planning on ringing in 2018 with friends. This is a drink we will definitely enjoy a few of through the evening!
