Cocktail of the Week: The Cosmopolitan February 4, 2021

Valentine’s or Galentine’s, everybody needs a pink drink to celebrate with! The Cosmopolitan is the perfect classic to sip on whilst you stare lovingly into each other’s eyes…or maybe just at Netflix. I mean it’s not like we’ve not seen enough of each other in lockdown, right?! Fresh, zingy, sweet and citrusy, it’ll liven up your Valentine’s night in for sure.

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
