Ultimate Cosmopolitan

Posted on 26. Oct, 2009 by in Drinks

You can get a lot differnt cosmos out their, this is my favorite!

20z Citron Vodka

3/4oz Grand Mariner

3/4oz Cranberry Juice

2 Lime Wedges

Pour all ingredients and lime wedges into a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. There should be tiny ice crystals in the drink when its poured, you want to be able to “skate on it”. This drink is supposed to highlight the citrus and spirits. All to often bartenders ruin good cosmos with to much cranberry. A cosmo should be light pink, if it looks like a glass of cranberry, send it back. Most cosmos will use triplesec or cointreau but I like the depth of flavor and complexity that Grand Mariner adds.
