I love cosmopolitan. They are so tasty! Making them at home is hard. I tried a couple of different recipes and I noticed two things. The first is oh my goodness you could really taste the alcohol and the second is they are not as sweet as at the restaurants. I basically had to add two-three times the cranberry juice for it to even be drinkable. I was originally supposed to post this 2 weeks ago, but I just have had such a hard time finding a perfect recipe. The worse part is that we don’t actually have martini glasses! I think it would probably taste better in one, but what to do. I’ll have to update the images later.
I have tried different combinations, and this is the one I have found to taste the best. I used regular vodka because this is what I have, but you can also try making it with citrus vodka.
1 ½ oz vodka
¾ oz Cointreau
½ oz lime juice
2 oz cranberry juice (++ depending on the strength you want)
Mix in a shaker with ice and serve in a chilled martini glass.
