Red candy for rim of glass: 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup water Red food coloring (to desired shade) Cocktail Ingredients: 1 oz. Vodka 1/2 oz. Chambord (raspberry liqueur) 3 oz. cranberry juice A splash of lime juice
Red Candy: Combine all ingredients in a saucepot over medium-high heat. Bring to a low boil, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon to be sure the sugar dissolves completely. Allow to bubble for 5 minutes (if you have a candy thermometer, allow it to reach 300º F). Remove from heat. Dip rims of cocktail glasses into the sticky goo, but be careful not to get any of this on you — it is hot! We recommend wearing an oven mit during this step. Cocktail: Pour all cocktail ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake. Strain into prepared martini glass.
