Cosmopolitan Cocktail


  • 1 Part Vodka
  • 1/2 Part Orange Flavored Liquor such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
  • 1 Part Cranberry Juice
  • Several Squirts of Fresh Lime Juice (I prefer like the more delicate flavor of the Key Lime)
  • Ice (for Cocktail Shaker)


  1. Chill the martini glasses for a few minutes.  Also, chill the Cocktail Shaker for a couple of minutes.  

  2. Add ice to your Cocktail Shaker. 

  3. Pour the cranberry juice, orange flavored liquor, vodka, and a generous squirt or two of the fresh lime juice (Key Lime juice would be preferable if you can find it) into the shaker. 

  4. Put the cap on the shaker and shake.

  5. Strain the liquid into the prepared martini glasses.
