↓ Advertisement ↓
  • Your favorite vodka 2 oz.
  • Cointreau .25 oz.
  • Fresh lime juice/simple syrup mixture .50 oz.
  • White cranberry juice 1.5 oz.
  • Cranberries (floating as garnish) 3 to 4 cranberries

Procedure:

  • Combine ingredients over ice in shaker tin. Shake & strain into chilled martini glass. For a festive touch garnish with 3-4 floating cranberries.
  • Secrets to Shake it up
  • Make your own cranberry vodka infusion, by placing cranberries in your favorite vodka and allow it to infuse for 48- 72 hours.
  • For a stronger Cosmo flavor, substitute your favorite Citron flavored vodka.
  • For a fun twist and a little bit sweeter flavor use St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur in place of the Cointreau.
  •  Increase the volume of all ingredients by 10 and serve punch style. Freeze cranberries in a block of ice so not only does it keep the punch chilled but also looks fun and festive for your holiday party!
