And what's more classic than a Cosmopolitan? Brought to our attention by the ladies from Sex And The City - in the final ever episode Miranda asks "Why did we ever stop drinking these?" to which Carrie replies "Because everyone else started!" - it was love at first sip for me back in 2004, on holiday in Grenada.
|My first ever Cosmo in 2004!!|
As soon as I got home I set about perfecting the recipe - and here it is!
Pour 2 shots of citrus vodka (Smirnoff, as above, or Absolut work well) and one shot of Cointreau into a cocktail shaker over ice.
Add the juice of half a lime...
... and about 3 good glugs of cranberry juice.
Pop the lid on and give it a good shake.
Serve in a martini glass and enjoy (Jimmy Choos optional)!
