  • 1
    Gather your ingredients.
  • 2
    Cranberries are too tart to just muddle into your drink - you'll need to cook them down with some sugar to make sure they are properly sweetened for your drink. Add enough cranberries to a saucepan to cover the bottom, then add half a cup of water and a quarter cup of sugar (if you like sweet drinks, feel free to add more). Cook and stir the mixture over moderate heat for 5 minute or until all the cranberries have burst. This cranberry mixture will be enough for 5-6 drinks.
  • 3
    Once mixture has cooled, add 2-3 spoonfuls of cranberries to your glass.
  • 4
    Using a muddler or wooden spoon, press down on the cranberries to release leftover juice and break down any large bits of fruit.
  • 5
    Add two ounces of vodka to your cranberry mixture.
  • 6
    Fill glass three quarters of the way with seltzer and add a few ice cubes.
  • 7
    Stir. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge and two fresh cranberries on a toothpick.
  • 8
    Enjoy.
