How to Make a Cosmopolitan

If you like alcoholic drinks with a fruity twist, then a Cosmopolitan may be just to your taste.

Start by putting some ice, crushed or cubes, in a cocktail shaker. The proportion of alcohol to fruit juice is dependent on the individual, but a starting recipe is one ounce of vodka to one ounce of cranberry juice, and once ounce of lime juice, preferably fresh squeezed. Add just a dash of either Cointreau or Triple Sec, and agitate the shaker 2-4 times.

Pour into a martini glass and add a twist of lime, or drop a couple of whole cranberries into the bottom.

To enhance the drink a little, chill your martini glasses first, then wet the rim by rubbing your cut lime around it before squeezing the juice out. Dip the rim in a dish of sugar, and then pour your drink.
