This tasty and gorgeous cranberry orange Cosmopolitan is made in less than two minutes in a cocktail shaker.  For an impressive finishing touch,  garnish with a fresh lime twist.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce Cointreau or other triple sec
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka or citrus vodka
  • ice

Instructions

  1. Add cranberry juice, Cointreau, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker.  Cap and shake to combine.
  2. Add vodka and fill halfway up with ice.  Cap and shake vigorously.
  3. Strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with a lime twist.

Notes

  • Use good quality vodka and orange liqueur as it really does make a difference.
  • Mix the drinks right before serving so the ice does not water them down.
  • Use a cocktail shaker to mix the drink.  First add the cranberry juice, then the orange liqueur, lime juice and shake a little bit. Then add the vodka and fill halfway up with ice before shaking.
  • To mix make sure the lid is firmly in place. Hold the lid down with one hand and the base of the shaker with other hand.  Shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds.  Pour into the cocktail glass through the strainer.
  • Garnish with a lime or lemon twist, thin lime or lemon rounds. or lime or lemon slices.
