My Cointreau Cosmopolitan Recipe
I’ve tweaked my Cosmopolitan recipe over the years, but here’s the one I’m drinking this summer…
What’s not to love about a pink martini?
1 shot vodka
1 T Cointreau
Use good vodka. If the name sounds like a Russian magician, it’s probably bad choice. Smirnoff is on the edge.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka, Cointreau, a shot or so of cranberry juice, and a squeeze of lime. Shake the heck out of it. Strain it into a martini glass, top it off with a bit more cranberry juice and another squeeze of lime.
Now head outside and enjoy it while wearing a fabulous maxi dress, your favorite lipstick, and your most glamorous accessories!
OK, please don’t think I’m a spammer despite my chatty fingers! I’m back & with a link again at my blog to find you easier… I have already explained to you my motives to learn so hope that makes me less scary stalker-y…
That sounds yum! A rarity, but just happen to have at the moment some handcrafted small batch vodka, a lime, may have to tweak the cranberry juice to hibiscus — but what is cointreau?
OK, in truth, this will have to wait for another day & I hope I don’t forget. Thank you for telling me what a pink martini is! I never knew, but I’m a big fan of the band. Are you?
Oh, cointreau = triplesec, orange liquer… Hubby says this is like a Kamamikaze! Perhaps this will make him think this is less girly? We’re going to do this at some point soon, but may have to forgo both triplesec & cranberry… (Neither on hand; sorry!)
What is a maxi dress?
I’m full of questions!
