Happy Hour - Cosmopolitan
The Cosmopolitan is a classic cocktail that happened to become very popular in the 90s. I think it's time for a comeback!
Don't worry, it's not too sweet. It's actually a vodka sour, quite boozy, with an awesome pink hue from the small amount of cranberry juice.
It's super refreshing and easy to make so I highly recommend mixing some up for your next party or night in.
Here's what you need:
1 1/2 oz vodka (or citrus vodka if you have it)
1/2 oz triple sec (or Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
1/2 oz cranberry juice
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
lime twist for garnish
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, mix all ingredients and shake until cold.
Pour into a martini glass and garnish with a twist of lime peel.
If you double the recipe you can make two at once, or make a whole bunch in advance for a party! Cheers!
