I want to share a classic beauty with you guys. A Cosmopolitan cocktail!
Wait…wait..wait…I’ll be right back…

Ok, much better! I had to make my self a cosmo. You can’t write a post about cosmo without drinking one, you just can’t!!
Cosmopolitan is just such a classic, delicious cocktail. The origin of this cocktail is actually unknown but many are credited with this invention. Whoever created this cocktail…heats off!! 

1 1/2 oz Vodka
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz Triple Sec
1/2 oz Lime juice
some ice
Lime for twist and garnish

(sometimes, I like to squeeze about 1/4 oz of fresh orange juice)

1. Combine the vodka, cranberry juice, tripple sec, lime juice and ice in a shaker. Shake vigorously but hold top and bottom. (trust me, bad things can happen :)
2. Before pouring, make the lime twist:
- Cut off a round lime slice. Make a cut on the side (do not cut in half)
- Carefully, peel off the skin

 3. Spiral the lime skin and keep twisting until you see lime oil appear on the skin.

4. Rub the oily lime skin on the rim of the martini glass.

5. Pour in your cosmo mix…

    How beautiful.  I love 
    Cosmopolitan. And you’re totally right, can’t write a blog post on 
    Cosmopolitan without having one on hand.  :)

    When it comes to drinks, I usually prefer a bramble or a manhattan. But on those days where you just crave something a bit sweeter, the cosmo is the drink to go for.
