Chloe’s CosmopolitanDecember 13, 2007
Chloe, our gorgeous friend from the US of A came over for dinner, and instead of bringing wine, she brought the ingredients for the New Yorker’s drink of choice – the Cosmopolitan.
She mixed a whole pitcher-full of the chic and sexy cocktail and as we poured it out into chilled martini glasses we all secretly pretended we were supping our cocktails in a cool Brooklyn apartment rather than a Finchley garden flat.
The combination of flavours is irresistible – slightly tart cranberry juice is set off nicely by the sweetness of the triple sec and the citrussy cointreau and lime juice – all kicked into shape by good old vodka.
Possibly not recommended mid-week, unless for a special occasion, for example if some friends have come over.
Recipe for Cosmopolitan
4 parts vodka
1 part triple sec
1 part cointreau
2 parts cranberry juice
1 part fresh lime juice
Mix everything together and serve in chilled martini glasses and garnish with a lime wedge. Perfect for a Christmas birthday party, or any other time.
