Ice-Cold Cosmopolitan

I hope you are enjoying the summer as much as I do.

Lots of reading and writing.

It’s the perfect weather for ice-cold cocktails.

As I promised in the latest newsletter, here is the recipe for my Cosmopolitan (very inspired by Sex And The City).

A classic cosmo is very easy to make and the result is really tasty 🙂

This is how I do it (one person):

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • ¾ oz fresh lime juice (= large lime)
  • 1 oz Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
  • Lime or orange twist (for serving)
  • Ice

Mix Vodka, Cointreau, cranberry juice and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill up the shaker with ice and shake it thoroughly until you can feel it’s getting cold. It should be less than a minute.

Strain the drink into your favorite martini glass and you’re done.

For an additional touch of class, garnish with lime or orange twist.


Today I finally got to try my new cocktail shaker. If you don’t have one, then you might want to have a look at THIS ONE. It comes with a built in strainer, a double jigger, a mixing spoon (+ several drink recipes) and it works like a charm (also for Margarita’s ;)).

Much love ♥
