This wedding-inspired drink tastes just as sweet as the cake, but packs a lot less calories! We love the idea of serving this reddish martini at a bridal or bachelorette party with the girls. Be sure to garnish with a lemon twist to give it that extra flair factor!


  • 2 ounces vanilla vodka
  • 1 ounce lemonade
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon pure sugar, for rimming
  • Fresh lemon twist, for garnish


Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, and then pour into a sugar-rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
