Fresh home made cosmopolitan cocktails with garnish

Cosmopolitans make me think of nights out in my twenties. The colour, the taste, even holding a martini glass, I loved it all! They were definitely my cocktail of choice in the early noughties.

Here’s my easy cocktail shaker Cosmo recipe for one, but it can be easily doubled up:


  • A double shot of vodka
  • A single shot of Cointreau
  • A lime & an orange
  • Double shot of cranberry juice
  • Ice & a martini glass


  • Fill your martini glass with ice.
  • Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the cocktail shaker.
  • Add a double shot of vodka & a single shot of Cointreau to the shaker.
  • Pour out a double shot of cranberry juice and add to the mix.
  • Tip the ice out of the glass into the shaker.
  • Cap the shaker and shake for 30 seconds.
  • Holding a strainer over the shaker pour the cocktail into the glass.
  • Peel a three inch piece of orange peel.
  • Hold the peel over a lit match above the glass allowing the oil to drip into the drink.
  • Stir and garnish with the peel.
