How to Make a Cosmopolitan
In a cocktail shaker add ice, vodka, triple sec, cranberry, and lime, and shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with an orange, lemon or lime twist.
Tips & Tricks
Add 1/2 fluid ounce Grand Marnier and additional 1/2 cranberry juice for a more richer taste. The additional cranberry juice will not make it as strong unless you want a strong drink. This is also known as a Grand Cosmo.
Try a cranberry infused vodka in place of cranberry juice. This known as the Ultimate Cosmo.
Stick with fresh lime juice for this recipe.
Start with chilled vodka and chilled martini glass.
- 1 1/2 ounces citrus-flavored vodka
