Happy Hour: Cosmo-Not

Most of the time, non-alcoholic drinks are simple, you open the bottle and you pour it into a glass. Sure there are a lot of great non-alcoholic options out there, but what if the drink recipient was hoping for something a little more unique? Well, don't fret, I've got the perfect recipe for you! Taking its cue from a classic Cosmopolitan, a Cosmo-Not is the perfect blend of citrus, pomegranate and cranberry. To start serving these up at your next shindig,

Cosmo-Not Martini
From Martini Art

6 ounces of freshly squeezed and very cold orange juice.
2 ounces of freshly squeezed and very cold tangerine juice.
2 orange rind twists.
2 very, very thin orange slices.
1 lime cut in half.
3 ounces of cranberry juice.
1 ounce of pomegranate juice.
4 drops of vanilla extract.
1 ounce of seltzer water.

  1. Add all of your juices and vanilla extract to a shaker 1/2 full with cracked ice.
  2. Shake for a full minute.
  3. Squeeze in the juice of your lime and swirl the shaker ten times.
  4. Strain into 2 large, frozed martini glasses.
  5. Top each glass with an orange slice and one orange twist.
  6. Slowly pour one tablespoon of seltzer into each glass (over the orange).

lalalaurie- As a bartender, I will say that most bartenders in restaurants will NOT know how to make the mentioned drink. Regular Cosmos, sure, but the recipe above uses a few ingredients many bartenders don't keep behind the bar (i.e., vanilla, pomegranate juice). If you want, bring the recipe with you and some bartenders may be willing to make your drink, or some version of it. It does sound good!

this sounds so good! I have a couple of friends who don't drink so this would be perfect for them.

Cranberry juice and sprite/7up/fresca with a squirt of lime is also divine!
