Let's learn how to make the madras cocktail, an easy vodka cocktail with few ingredients and good taste. Cranberry juice with orange juice combined with a bit of vodka and boom: The Madras Cocktail Recipe! To work a proper madras at home, you'll want some cranberry juice cocktail (the bottled stuff) along side fresh squeezed orange juice. The Madras Cocktail recipe is a vodka based drink so the juices are going to be what brings out the flavor of this cocktail recipe while the vodka is just there to make it a "cocktail" and not a fruit punch style drink. Easy vodka cocktails come supplied with easy to access ingredients and the Madras fits that category. The delicate flavors of a Madras only works because the spirit utilized isn't extremely potent, however I could totally see gin working in a Madras recipe, although it's probably already existing under a different name. Make the Madras Cocktail at home or order it at a bar, I'm sure they can make it if you tell them what goes into it (although they'll probably used canned orange juice). But, if you are a bartender, you should know how to build and serve the Madras Cocktail Recipe for your guests, maybe even suggest it to your vodka drinkers.
