Cocktail of the Week: The Cosmopolitan June 2, 2020

We’ve been loving being able to serve you drinks at home through our new delivery and collection service. This week’s special, The Cosmopolitan, proved our most popular tipple, the perfect sunshine party drink. So for all your socially distanced park catch ups or time at home in the garden, here’s the recipe to liven up your lockdown drinking.

25ml lime juice

25ml Stolichnaya citron vodka

25ml Triple Sec or Cointreau

60ml cranberry juice

A wedge of lime 


Add all your ingredients into your chosen shaker – tupperware or jam jar will do if you don’t have a fancy shaker. Squeeze the wedge of lime and drop it in with everything else for an edge of bitter oil to give the drink a punch.

Shake hard with lots of ice.

Strain into a martini glass and serve straight up. Garnish with a slice of orange zest – flame it first to bring out the zesty goodness.

Enjoy! x
