The Broken Shaker duo, Elad Zvi and Gabriel Orta, put their own twist on the Cape Codder formula, adding a measure of Cocchi Americano and housemade cranberry vinegar to the vodka base and opting to serve the typically tall drink as a short serve, on the rocks.

1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
Combine the cranberries, sugar, vinegar, and 3⁄4 cup water in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the cranberries burst, about 8 to 10 minutes. Refrigerate, covered, for 4 days, then strain out the cranberries. The vinegar will keep, refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks.
