Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe
The ingredients list for this Cosmopolitan Cocktail is pretty easy to acquire. You’ll only need 2 different alcohols, 2 juices, ice, and an orange peel. The full ingredient list is as follows:
- Vodka or Citrus vodka
- Cointreau Orange Liqueur
- Fresh Lime Juice
- Cranberry Juice
- Orange Peel (Garnish)
To make this great tasting cocktail, you’ll need a martini glass (or any cocktail glass) and a cocktail shaker. We prefer to use a metal shaker as they seem to get the mixture colder, but any shaker type will do.
The steps for this drink couldn’t be easier! Add the ice to a cocktail shaker, followed by Vodka, Cointreau, lime juice, and cranberry juice. Shake until well mixed and cold.
Strain the Cosmopolitan cocktail into a chilled cocktail glass (We like to use a Martini glass) and twist an orange peel to use as a garnish.
- 1 1/2 oz vodka or citrus vodka
