The Witness

Recipe by  

"A great success at my bar! It is a classy, sweet alternative to the Cosmopolitan, while still retaining the tartness of the original. The name usually gets laughs when someone yells out: 'Can I get a witness?'"

I submitted this recipe, and I would suggest using TWO SPLASHES of each mixer: rose's, freh lime, cranberry, and grapefruit, NOT fluid ounces!

I had this made for me by a bartender with peach snapps instead of peach vodka and it was delicious!

I would give this 10 stars if I could, Oh my gosh, love it, love it, love it! Guys if you want to impress a lady, make her this drink!

It was nice...a little too sweet for me and the triple sec overpowered everything. If I made it again, I would definitely decrease the triple sec--maybe use add'l fresh squeezed lime juice. Use freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice--it really ramps up the 'fresh' flavor!
