Cosmopolitan 2.0

Recipe by Melissa Nicholson Course: Cocktail



The pink Cosmo is one of the most known cocktails out there. Pairing the sourness of cranberry juice with the sweet, velvety taste of orange liqueur is perfection. This is a cocktail that has gotten me into trouble a few times. Oops.


  • 2 oz Vodka

  • 1 oz orange liqueur

  • 1 oz fresh lime juice

  • 1 oz cranberry juice

  • 1 thin lemon peel


  • In your shaker, add all liquid ingredients and ice.
  • Shake well to cool down the mix.
  • Double strain the mix into your glass with no ice.
  • Squeeze the oils from the lemon peel on top of your glass and throw it in.
