Martini Recipe - Cosmopolitan

So the purists out there will probably scoff at the idea that a Cosmopolitan would grace the pages of this Martini recipe blog.

The truth of the matter is that this drink is exceedingly popular with the ladies and it is traditionally served in a Martini glass. So I would be re missed if I omitted it here.

The cosmopolitan is a drink made popular first by french women in the early 20s and later became en vogue across the country. Its popularity is rooted in the fact that it is a very fun beverage to drink and it is easy as the cranberry juice covers up any bad vodka that might be used. If you recognize the recipe like that of a Cape Code (or Cranberry-Vodka), then you're right. The addition of the Triple Sec and Lime Juice really make this one a treat.

Martini Ingredients
2 parts vodka
1 part triple sec
1 part lime juice
1 part cranberry juice

Martini Instructions
Mix the vodka, triple sec, lime and cranberry juice togetther in a shaker with ice. Strain into a martini glass, add a lime wedge on the rim of the glass for garnish, and serve.
