Cape Codder Cocktail Info!

The Cape Codder cocktail, or Cape Cod, is another name for Vodka Cranberry. It gets its name from an East Coast Massachusetts town, which is well-known for growing cranberries. It's a simple cocktail made with vodka and cranberry juice. The drink is served in a highball glass, garnished with a lime wedge. The Cape Codder is easy to make. You don't even need to shake, strain, or use any bar tools.

You can use any vodka you like, it doesn't have to be expensive or fancy. A good, average vodka will work, especially when it is paired with sweet, tart cranberry juice. The lime wedge or wheel isn’t just for looks; it can also be added to the cocktail for a refreshing dose of citrus.

The Cape Codder cocktail is named after nautical or coastal themes. For example, the Sea Breeze combines vodka, grapefruit, and grapefruit juice. The Bay Breeze, on the other hand, is vodka, pineapple, and cranberry juice. These simple cocktails are refreshing and tasty, no matter if you're on a yacht with the Kennedys or enjoying a drink with friends on the patio.
