How to Make an Orange Cranberry Gin and Juice Cocktail
- In a cocktail shaker, add the gin and orange juice, shake vigorously to combine.
- Pour the cranberry juice into a highball glass. Fill glass with ice.

How to Make Perfect Orange Slices
My knife skills are not great. My orange slices are always inconsistent thicknesses or I end up using a dull knife. But I love to make cocktails at home. If you love to serve up cocktails at parties, you might want to invest in a mandoline slicer. Get perfect slices of orange, lemon, and limes in record time.
