The Cosmopolitan (Cosmo) has an opaque history as to its origin. However, it definitely became a trendy cocktail thanks to one Carrie Bradshaw, on HBO's Sex and the City. After just making my first Cosmo, I can tell you that it is simple to put together, easy on the eyes, and pleasant on the palate. There seems to be many variations as to the ingredients, but most of them revolve around Vodka, Orange Liqueur, Lime Juice, and Cranberry Juice. Use our recipe as a guideline, and just have fun with it! Do enjoy our "Cocktail of the Week", the Cosmo!
2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cointreau (or any Orange Liqueur)
1 oz. Roses Lime Juice (fresh Lime juice is great too)
1.5 oz. Cranberry Juice
Lime or Orange wheel for garnish
Pour all of the ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Cover, shake well, and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish accordingly, and start enjoying your magnificent and fun cocktail... the Cosmo!
