Brand New Drink!

I just made up a drink and I rather like it!

I went out and picked fresh spearmint, and tore it in large pieces and added ice (this was in a shaker). I added cranberry juice and a shot of vodka. Then I added a 2/3 shot of limoncello. Then....
*shake*shake*shake*
Pour over a drink strainer. YUM!
What shall I call it? (or is it already a drink and I'm just dense?)

I don't know what I would call it, but it sounds yummy jkath. Just for giggles I googled the three ingredients on the net and here is what I found.

Limoncello Cosmopolitan

Combine vodka, cranberry juice and a splash of Caravello Limoncello. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.

hmmm - but Ah-Ha! I added the refreshing-ness (okay, so I couldn't come up with a better word) of spearmint!
It tastes like summertime, with a kick.

I like the mint idea. Hey, still you thought of it on your own. Keep those creative juices flowing.

CMC?
No, that sounds to much like C+C music factory, or worse yet, the MMC (Mickey Mouse club)
