My mothers favorite drink is a Cosmopolitan, so when she was stuck at home during quarantine I worked and perfected this sexy cocktail. Not overly sweet or too tart, my cosmopolitan cocktail recipe is perfect to shake up for one or even prepare in advance for a crowd.
The trick to making the perfect tasting Cosmopolitan is that it should come out light pink in color. Fill a martini glass with ice and water and let it sit while you shake up the cocktail, this will chill the glass.
- 3 Ounces of Vodka
- 1.5 Ounces of Cranberry Juice
- 1/2 Ounce of Lime Juice
- 1/2 Ounce of Cointreau
Combine Vodka, Cranberry Juice, Lime Juice, and Cointreau into a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake until outside of shaker is very cold. Empty ice water out of your chilled martini glass and strain cocktail into the martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
