Strawberry Cosmo


Strawberry Cosmo
I don't think that you can have too many Strawberry cocktails in your bartending arsenal.  This drink is a slight variation on the traditional Cosmo, and though there are several recipes online, this one seemed to be as easy, and as tasty, as any of them.  Definitely meeting two of our most important criteria...easy on the eyes, easy on the palate... we present our featured cocktail... Strawberry Cosmo.  Cheers!
2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
2 oz. Cranberry Juice
3 Strawberries
Comine two washed Strawberries and the Cranberry Juice in a blender, and puree (if you like a sweeter cocktail, add two Tbsp. of simple syrup).  Add that puree, and the Vodka, Schnapps, and Cointreau to an ice filled cocktail shaker.  Cover, shake well, and strain into a chilled Martini glass.  Add a skewered Strawberry for garnish, and get ready to start smiling, with your delicious... Strawberry Cosmo.  Bottoms up!
