The Madras

The Madras CocktailThe Madras is a refreshing, fruity cocktail that might just find a place in your list of drinks to know. It is an easy vodka cocktail that concentrates on fruit juice and is a variation on the Cape Codder (vodka and cranberry).

The mix is quite simple—a shot of vodka and a 3:1 ratio of cranberry and orange juices. Feel free to adjust these ratios to your taste.

The Madras was popular in the ’80s and is rumored to be named after Madras plaid. (Since the ’80s was the heyday of preppy.)
