Nomad’s Happy Hour: Cosmopolitan

The Cosmopolitan, typically referred to as the ‘Cosmo,’ made famous by Sex and the City, the Cosmo is licksmackingly sweet-and-sour fun fruity cocktail. There are so many variations to this wonderful drink.  We have included ‘the classic’ and our favourite, Frozen Raspberry Cosmo.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka (we like Kettle One)
  • 1  1/2 ounce Cointreau 
  • 1/4 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1/4 ounce lime juice
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 lime wedge for garnish

METHOD 

1. Combine vodka, lime juice, Cointreau and cranberry juice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass.

2. Garnish with lime.

FROZEN RASPBERRY COSMO

The ingredients are the same as the ‘Classic Cosmo,’ with the addition of 1 cup of frozen raspberries.

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency is reached. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with raspberry and lime.

Nomad’s Tip: Use Absolute Raspberri Vodka for an added twist!
