1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger
1/2 fluid ounce
fresh lime juice
1 1/2 fluid ounces
lime zest, garnish
This is a good cocktail, like most bars make it. The secret to an awesome Cosmo is using 1 tsp. of Roses Lime Juice instead of lime. It balances tart of cranberry.
You can get Roses at most grocery stores.
This is an amateur cosmo - it might as well be a Cape Cod with all of that cranberry juice. A real cosmo is barely pink - martini-style. The way this recipe is written it should just be served over ice - maybe add a splash of club soda.
The perfect way to get bombed on a summer afternoon.
This is really good. I have always liked cosmos, and wanted to make one myself...i felt like such a pro! One great variation is to use white cranberry juice, it looks very pretty, gaining only a very slight green color from the lime juice. Men seem to be more receptive to the "non-pink" drink as well! :o)
I loved this drink.....think I am addicted. I ran out of cranberry juice, but had raspberry-cranberry juice on hand....nice variation...raspberries, cranberries, limes and the orange cointreau. Will definitly be making more of these!
Very strong, but oh-so-smooth, and quite tasty (!!) so watch out. I made ice-cold pitchers of these for a party, rented cosmopolitan glasses and the women were wild about them. The men weren't too crazy about the idea of drinking pink drinks, so they stuck to the beer, though.
Fabulous! Try using rasperry Stoli's for something Absolutely Fabulous!
After a few rounds of these delicious drinks, my boyfriend's parents begged him to propose!
