How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.


A Cosmopolitan should normally be made with citrus vodka but this recipe works just as well with unflavoured vodka and personally, when a good quality cranberry juice is used, I prefer the simplicity of unflavoured vodka in this cocktail.


For information on the origin of the Cosmopolitan and numerous other Cosmo recipes, please see our Cosmopolitan Cocktail encyclopedia entry.
