Last Thursday I was invited to an annual charity event hosted by the Guardsmen - a fraternity-like organization for young, professional men. Geeksugar and I made our way upstairs to the balcony bar and ordered Cosmopolitans. The Cosmos were free and flowing however, I was disappointed in the taste because it was obvious that they were made with Cosmo mix rather than refreshing cranberry juice cocktail and fresh squeezed lime. Making a Cosmo is super simple, it's one of the most basic drinks and should be in every hostess' repertoire. To get the recipe, along with a gallery of images from the event, just
1 1/2oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Cointreau or Triple Sec
3/4 oz. Cranberry Juice
1/4 oz. Lime Juice
- Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well.
- Strain into a cockail glass.
- Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.
