Recipe: Amaretto-Cranberry Kiss

As you sweat out the "hot stove," here's a nice way to pass some time. This was in Bon Appetit this month - it is very good! I made 1/4 of a recipe, and omitted the o.j. and orange slices as garnish.

Amaretto-Cranberry Kiss
makes 8 cocktails

2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup amaretto
3 Tbsp. fresh orange juice
Ice cubes
Clementines, peeled and separated into segments

Mix cranberry juice, vodka amaretto, and orange juice in pitcher, Cover and chill until ready to serve. (Can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated)
To make 2 drinks, fill cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour in scant 1 cup of vodka mixture. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 martini glasses. Garnish with orange section, if desired. Repeat 3 times with ice cubes, remaining vodka mixture and orange sections.
