Cosmos “My Favorite”

Prep time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8oz Citron Vodka
  • 2oz Triple Sec
  • 3oz Cranberry Juice (Ocean Spray)
  • 11/2oz Lime Juice (Fresh)

Note

As the Recipe makes 4 you might want to divide the ingredients in half so that it will fit into the shaker.

Directions

Step 1
Place ice into 4 Martini Glasses to chill the glasses

Step 2
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and lime juice. (We like the extra bite of extra lime juice, so we use 1/2 an ounce in our cosmopolitan cocktails. However, use what is best for your taste).
Step 3
Shake the cocktail shaker for about 30 seconds until well chilled. Then, strain into a martini glass.

Step 4
Garnish with orange peel/twist. For an extra burst of flavor, peel the orange twist over the filled cocktail glass. This way, the orange oils spray into the glass.
