Friday Cocktail Hour with Shaun the Bartender presents; The Madras

Sitting on the back porch on a warm summers evening, sipping on a refreshing cocktail is the perfect way to end the day.  Even though spring has only been on our doorstep a day or two, my heart is lusting for a hot summer night.

Summer days are the only time I eat oranges or indulge in the refreshing juice, although admittedly usually only in a cocktail.  When I saw Shaun’s, Madras, I knew this would be the perfect way to finish the week.


  • 1 1/2 ounce vodka
  • cranberry juice
  • orange juice
  • lime wedge for garnish

Pour the measured amount of vodka into a highball glass filled with ice.  Top off with equal parts of cranberry juice and orange juice.  Garnish with a wedge of lime.

Whether your sweltering in the summer heat or enjoying the comforts of the fireplace on the coldest of winter days, this drink will satisfy your thirst.  The combination of ingredients will explain why this cocktail has always been a party favorite.  Enjoy!
