Donna Reed Recipe

All About Cocktails   General Recipes



2 oz Absolut Vodka
1 cup Ice
4 oz Cranberry juice
4 oz Sour mix

Start by crushing the ice in a blender. Add the cranberry juice (more or less to taste) and sour mix, blend a few more seconds. Add the Vodka and blend again. If done properly, this drink should be frothy for a bit, and then separate as it sits. Serve in cocktail or margarita glasses. It won't hurt to put it in the freezer for a short time (enough to slush it some).

Called a Donna Reed for two reasons: (1) it's pink (2) it was originally created in a 1950's-vintage blender. Fairly mild taste, not much alcohol.
