Comments: 0


Shortened to “Cosmo” by enthusiasts, this drink made a spirited comeback during the raging cocktail revival of the nineties. Sugar-frosting the rim is optional.


  • 2 oz. (¼ cup) vodka, plain or citron flavored
  • 1 oz. (2 Tbsp.) Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • 1 oz. (2 Tbsp.) cranberry juice
  • ½ oz. (1 Tbsp.) fresh lime juice


If desired, frost rim of chilled glass by moistening with a little cranberry juice, then dipping rim into granulated sugar. Shake ingredients with ice; strain into chilled glass.
