Cocktail Recipe: Cosmopolitan

This is the girlie drink you ought to make:


  • 2 parts cranberry juice cocktail
  • 2 parts triple sec
  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part lime juice

Shake with cracked ice; strain into chilled cocktail glass.

Some notes:

Always use fresh lime juice.

If you skip or skimp on the fresh-squeezed lime juice, ice, or shaking, you are not following directions and you will screw it up.

The vodka and triple sec proportions were inverted from the original recipe. The different tastes are better balanced this way, especially if you use Cointreau. Using more vodka makes it smell like your drunk Auntie.
