The Perfect Girls Night Cosmopolitan

This is how I unwind after a particularly long week. I’ve tried dozens of cosmos at restaurants and bars and this is by far the best (and probably healthiest) one I’ve ever had.


  • 2 oz Smirnoff Cranberry Vodka
  • 2 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz Light Cranberry Juice
  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice

How to make it

  1. Place 3-4 cubes of ice in a martini glass (this makes sure your drink is icy cold)
  2. Put all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add the ice from your glass
  3. Shake hard for at least 10 seconds (shake it hard enough and you’ll get icy bits floating on the top when you pour, my favorite part).
  4. Pour and enjoy.

Helpful Hints:

  • Before pouring your drink, rub the squeezed lime on the edge of your glass and roll it through some sugar.
  • Looking for something fancy? Some stores carry cosmo sugar made for rimming the edge of your glass.
