If you are looking for the perfect cocktail to serve during the festive season, look no further than my Christmas Cosmopolitan. It is a great way to begin a celebration and you can be certain that it is a crowd pleaser. What’s more, you will be delighted by how easy it is to make.

100 ml (⅓ cup + 1 tbsp) Vodka 60 ml (¼ cup) Cointreau or Triple Sec See Note 1 250 ml (1 cup) cranberry juice sweetened 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice See Note 2 1 cup ice cubes garnish of your choice - eg: orange, lime, rosemary
Put all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker or jar. Shake well to thoroughly combine the ingredients and ensure they are chilled. Strain into a martini glass or another glass of your choice. Serve with a garnish if you wish. I like orange peel, a twist of lime and sometimes a sprig of rosemary for a festive touch!
I prefer to use
Cointreau but you can use Triple Sec if you prefer. Always use
freshly squeezed lime juice, the flavour is fresher and more vibrant than the juice from a bottle. Please note, the
