Cosmos are one of my “go to” drinks when I am ordering a cocktail at a restaurant. There are so many different variations of this popular drink but this is the version that I enjoy at home and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
2 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Countreau
1 oz. cranberry juice
1/2 oz. lime juice
Ignore the Gin marker on the bottle, it is actually Vodka. I don’t drink Gin and it was the only antique bottle marker I had and I like the way it looks on my decanter.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of lime. Enjoy!
Looking for a fun Saturday Sip? Or any day sip? How about the combination of raspberry and lemon? Some of my favorite flavors together are lemon and raspberry, so Chambord and Limoncello were on the liquor store “packie” shopping list.
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 1/2 oz. Limoncello
1 oz. Chambord
Squeeze of a lemon
Rim a martini glass with lemon juice, and dip it in some sugar to make a lemon sugar rim.
Add all of the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker along with some ice and shake well.
Pour into your sugar rimmed martini glass and garnish with a slice of lemon.
The thing I love most about this martini is not only does it combine the three flavors I love, chocolate, raspberry, and vanilla, but it doesn’t have any additional creamy liquid. Lots of these dessert martinis have half and half or Bailey’s as an ingredient as well. While those flavors are also delicious, this recipe is great if you aren’t looking for such a heavy drink.
2 oz. vanilla vodka
2 oz. Chambord or raspberry liquor
2 oz. chocolate liquor
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well. Pour into a martini glass and enjoy!
