I love trying to new drink recipes (even though I am an avid bourbon drinker). Here was one I tried out and the wife really loved.
I have never been a Cosmo type guy but the wife wanted me to make her something different. I used to be a bartender and thought this might be a great drink to give a try. She is an avid wine drinker but who can pass up a perfect cosmo!
4 oz Vodka (I like Titos or Dixie)
2 oz Cointreau
2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 Lime (juice)
In a cocktail shaker, add the ingredients. Fill with ice. Shake until it is so cold that your hand cannot stand it.
Strain into a two martini glasses. Garnish with a lime wedge (if you wish).
