I’m so enthusiastic to share this cosmo drink recipe with you! It’s a single of my favorites.
Speaking of enthusiastic, this week I’m really hanging out in New York City nowadays. My close friends at BHG invited me to crew with them and Rebuilding Collectively to aid folks who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy this previous October.
This certain journey was a site visit to see the location and meet a couple of the property owners. We will be back in June for the rebuild. It’s this kind of an essential trigger. I’ll share a bit much more following week when I’m back residence.
But given that it’s Friday, I feel a drink is in purchase!
How to Make a Cosmopolitan drink (Cosmo):
Today I’m mixing up what I like to contact “The Ideal Cosmo.” A lot of cosmos drink recipes claim to be best, and I’m certain a good deal of them are, but this one particular is excellent for me.
I really like a very good cosmo, but it’s rare for me to order 1 out, particularly close to my small town, due to the fact I’m nervous about what I’m going to get. Will it be also sturdy? Will it be as well sweet? Will there be sugar around the rim? (This is a poor issue by the way never rim a martini glass with sugar for a cosmo.)
What is in a Cosmo?
- actually excellent vodka
- orange liqueur (I prefer Cointreau)
- cranberry juice
- freshly squeezed lime juice
So when I have a cosmo, I’m typically making them at home. What I’ve found more than the many years, and this applies to any martini, is that you must use really very good ingredients.
Since most martinis are fairly considerably straight alcohol, this is not the time for low cost vodka. Spend a couple added bucks for the good things. Cointreau, versus an off-brand triple sec (an orange-flavored liqueur) also makes a huge variation.
What does a Cosmo taste like?
I feel the cosmo is the ideal blend of flavors. The lime adds sour, the Cointreau include citrus and sweetness, and the cranberry adds berry and tartness. It’s a genuinely delightful blend!
I don’t want to sound like a snob, but I believe when any recipe is comprised of just a number of components, you must use the best elements feasible. A lesson I learned from Ina Garten actually.
Sidenote: I really love this Mason Jar Cocktail Shaker. You can find them right here. (affiliate website link)
