"Great martini or cosmo depending where you live! I use Ciroc vodka which isn't like any other vodka because it is distilled from fine French grapes. You can actually taste the grape in the vodka!" — NYPD K9 COP

2 1/2 fluid ounces
1 fluid ounce
Cointreau or other orange liqueur
4 fluid ounces
Concord grape juice
Very tasty! But I wouldn't call it a cosmo, I'd call it a grapetini and add a 3 or 4 frozen sweet GREEN (green so you can see them) grapes to the bottom of the martini glass before pouring. I'd go a bit heavier on the vodka too. (Plenty of room for the extra as my martini glasses are HUGE LOL!)
DH rated a 2 as it was too sweet for him. Even knowing how sweet it would be, I thought it deserving of only a 3. I love grape and orange together but this was just too grapey. For the second round, I doubled the orange (used Triple Sec because that's what was opened) and added 1/2 t. lime juice. It made just a tad over 3 drinks (I have regular sized martini glasses). Would I make it again? Yes, but for friends who do enjoy drinks on the sweet side...or just for me when I wish to have something different.
Very, very good but just a teeny bit sweet for me. I added a bit of lime juice that really added the "tang" I needed.
Fantastic! Added a little orange slice for garnish. However, this only made one serving. I own a very large martini glass.
These are simply the best sweet martinis I have ever had. I'm enjoying one right now! I can my own grape juice in the summer, uummm...
Very tasty and enjoyable with a squeeze of fresh lime to make it pop and taste more like a Cosmo. Nice blend of ingredients that are portioned well. I didn't find it too sweet at all. If you think you might then add grape juice 1 oz. at a time. Garnish with an orange or lime wheel or both.
This is yummy! I used juice I made myself from fresh concord grapes and no sugar added. Not too sweet, just delicious.
