Madras Shmadras

Madras is a lightweight plaid cloth, most often used in summer clothing, which is named for the city in India where it originated. Madras is also a cocktail made with vodka, cranberry juice, and orange juice, in about a 1.5:3:1 ratio.

The city in India has since changed its name to Chennai. And we’ve revamped the cocktail to go along with the new name. Presenting:

The Chennai
2 parts Stoli O
1 part cranberry juice
1 part club soda.

It’s similar….you get the orange flavor from the vodka, and the cran is still there, but it’s so so much lighter and fresher.

Trust us on this.
