Jolly Rancher Martini

I love this for two reasons. 1) It's delicious and 2) it's easy and convenient. You can make a single batch up in a martini shaker, or you can make a big batch of it all at once, which is really easy because of the simple quantities that are easily converted from oz to cups and then doubled or whatever you wanna do with 'em. I don't judge! Which is great because my awesome Lemonade I have always made in big batches is kind of hard to make in a larger jug, because the amount of lemonade isn't actually a measured amount, it's just added to top up to the top of the specific jug. Any other jug and we'd be lost. Does that even make any sense? Trust me, I do have my reasons for saying this.

This sadly is not my own recipe, I found a screenshot I took of it a long time ago, in a mass of clutter on my desktop. But there was no url captured in the shot, so the deserving recipient of credit for this is unknown.

Serves 2

1 oz Watermelon Vodka
1 oz Raspberry Sour Puss
1 oz Apple Sour Puss
1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
4 oz Cranberry Juice

or I make it in a jug because it keeps, or you're serving a lot of people (these quantities fit in a Simply Lemonade / OJ jug - 1.75 L)

1 C. Watermelon Vodka
1 C. Raspberry Sour Puss
1 C. Apple Sour Puss
1/2 C. Fresh Lemon Juice
4 C. Cranberry Juice

or (this fits perfectly in the larger sized Tropicana juice jugs - 2.89 L [or close to that, I don't have the jug in front of me now])

1 1/2 C. Watermelon Vodka
1 1/2 C. Raspberry Sour Puss
1 1/2 C. Apple Sour Puss
3/4 C. Fresh Lemon Juice
6 C. Cranberry Juice

So enjoy with a friend, lots of friends, or lots and lots of friends!
