The cosmopolitan is an elegant martini-style cocktail that derives its pink color from a splash of cranberry juice. This easy cosmopolitan recipes tweak traditional ingredients to include subtle taste twists such as Cointreau (intense sweet and bitter orange) and pomegranate juice.


1 oz. orange liqueur
1 oz. cranberry juice
1/2 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. cup ice cubes
Fresh lime peel twist
2 oz. vodka


In a cocktail shaker combine liquids.

Add ice cubes, cover and shake until cold.

Makes one.
