Cosmopolitan


40 ml
A vodka with added citrus, often lemon, flavoring. You can make it yourself! It's easy and hard to screw-up, cut 3-4 lemons into wedges or slices and add them to 2 cups of vodka in a sealable glass jar. Let steep for 1-2 weeks depending on strength desired (taste along the way). Remove lemons when you think it's good to go, now make a Cosmopolitan!
15 ml
Original CuraƧao triple sec, this is an orange flavoured liqueur made from a neutral sugar spirit along with the dried peels of bitter and/or sweet oranges. You can make it yourself! Here is a recipe from Serious Eats: Combine 1/4 cup orange zest (without pith), with 1 cup brandy, and 1 cup vodka in a sealable glass container. Let steep for 19 days. On day 20, add 4 whole cloves, then let steep from an additional day. Bring 2 cups sugar and 1 1/2 cup water to boil until sugar dissolves. Strain the alcoholic mixture through a cheesecloth. Add the syrup, stir to combine then seal. Let rest for 1 more day and enjoy!
15 ml
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
30 ml
A juice used in some cocktails for its tart and sweet taste as well as beautiful reddish-purple color. The astringent (mouth drying) properties of cranberry juice can be removed by a process called washing, which negates the polyphenols.
1 twist
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).

Add all ingredients into cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and double strain into large cocktail glass. Garnish with lime wheel. #shake #straight


The origin of the cosmopolitan is disputed. It is widely believed that the drink was created independently by different bartenders since the 1970s. According to Sally Ann Berk and Bob Sennett, the cosmopolitan appears in literature as early as 1993 and derives from New York City. -Wiki
