Vodka Likes Cranberries More Than Turkey
Sparkletini's anyone?
Ladies (and gentlemen?) I present you with a new pink cocktail of epic proportions. The cranberry-lime sparkletini is sure to chip at the wall of inhibitions while tickling one's tongue into a euphoric bliss. (I'm not exaggerating, I swear!) 
1 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, mottled
1/3 cup limeade concentrate
1/4 cup cranberry juice
1 cup vodka
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced into wheels
1 1/2 cup carbonated water
Gold or silver fleck (optional; available from goldleafcompany.com)
Mix everything except for the Gold fleck (if using) and carbonated water in a large pitcher and allow to marry in the refrigerator for at least two hours. After ingredients have married, strain and return to the pitcher. Then add the carbonated water and gold flecks. Pour into a martini or cocktail glass and serve.
