Ingredients (serves 2):

1/2 lime
3 ounces vodka
1 1/2 ounces Cointreau
2 ounces cranberry juice


  • Fill cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Squeeze in juice of the lime half.
  • Add vodka and Cointreau.
  • Top with cranberry juice.
  • Sugar the rims of two chilled martini glasses (optional).
  • Shake the Cosmopolitan briskly for 10-15 seconds and serve in the chilled martini glasses.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge if desired.

Bartender’s Hint:   For best mixing results, use a cocktail shaker that’s large enough to allow for about an inch of empty space after adding all ingredients.   Shake your Cosmopolitan vigorously until the shaker is frosted on the outside.
