The Cosmopolitan

Its name alone denotes worldliness, sophistication and knowledge.  With all of those attributes going for it, there’s no wonder why it was Carrie Bradshaw’s libation of choice. 

The allure of the drink's rosy shade makes the Cosmopolitan the perfect cocktail to serve on Valentine’s Day while toasting your sweetheart.  

Here is how I make them.

1 ½ ounces citrus flavored vodka
½ ounce Cointreau
½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
3 ounces cranberry juice

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients and a few ice cubes.  Shake well and pour into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with a slice of lime.  Sip and enjoy.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
