Cape Codder

If you are startled by the name of this cocktail, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s actually just vodka cranberry, but with a twist. And no, we don’t mean to add lime in it. All you need is a bottle of cranberry juice and some vodka, a couple of cranberries inside the glass which you can ornate with a small piece of lime. That’s it! Also, vodka is such a good ingredient for creating DIY cocktails that you can come up with lots and lots of new drinks. You can make a Frog in the orange juice machine if you add fresh lime or orange to the mix and blend everything together.

It’s probably the most popular cocktail out there. Also, the one that’s extremely easy to prepare and combine with juice machine recipes.

Peach schnapps or even fresh peaches can give you an excellent recipe for a hand blender smoothie margarita.
