Miranda Lambert's Signature "Randarita" Cocktail Recipe

Miranda Lambert is pretty low maintenance when it comes to her favorite mixed drink. Instead of a fancy cocktail or even an expensive bottle of wine, she reaches for a “Randarita,” her signature drink.

“My trainer, Bill, approves,” Lambert said. “I mean, he’d rather me not drink, but that’s not an option. I have one before a show and a half during. Later, if I want to throw down, I throw down!” The vodka drink is made with sugar-free Crystal Light®, which keeps it low in calories.

For fans 21 and over, the drink is simple to make, recipe below.

Lambert is currently headlining her Platinum Tour, sponsored by Crystal Light®. Her latest single, “Somethin’ Bad,” featuring Carrie Underwood, is at country radio now.

Miranda Lambert’s Randarita Cocktail
