4 oz. cranberry juice
2 oz. vodka
1 oz. triple sec
6 oz. ginger beer
In a cocktail shaker, add the cranberry juice, vodka and triple sec; add ice and shake well.
Pour the contents over fat ice cubes in two highball glasses or copper mugs until about two-thirds full.
Slowly pour in ginger beer, topping off each cocktail; garnish with orange slices and serve at once.
Optional: a bit of fresh orange zest.
To make a mocktail version, use cranberry juice with Topo Chico seltzer water or ginger ale in place of the spirits.
