Classic Cocktail: The Cosmopolitan

Have you ever strayed from ordering a certain cocktail because you fear being made fun of? The cosmopolitan can definitely bring about this kind of feeling. But when you are thinking about stocking your home bar and what can be easy to whip up a cosmopolitan is a great recipe to get to know. Plus, you can easily tweak this recipe to be even better and more creative. Maybe you just want to channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw. That's as good a reason as any to whip up this cocktail recipe or any other variation! It is definitely true that the cosmopolitan lacks an aspect of craft, but sometimes creating cocktails should be easy and quick and delicious. 

Ingredients

1.5 oz vodka
3/4 oz cranberry juice
1/2 oz Cointreau
lime for garnish

Method

Add ingredients to a shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a wedge or wheel of lime. 

A fun and delicious cosmo variation is coming your way next week!

Cheers!
