How to Mix a Cosmopolitan Cocktail

Add Vodka, Cointreau, Cranberry juice and lime juice into a shaker, filled with crushed ice.

Avoid shaking the cocktail for too long, in order to avoid diluting the drink with melting ice.

Strain the drink using a strainer.

Pour the cocktail into a chilled Martini glass.

Add an orange or lemon peel garnish to the glass and serve.


  • You can also try different flavored Vodkas including lemon or vanilla.
