Now on to the last of the experimental Cosmos. It stood out for it’s non-partisan blend of vodka, Cointreau and cranberry. Did this provide a perfect balance? Almost. Not quite.
I have examined this recipe, sipped, scribbled and contemplated all data from this and the previous four Cosmo recipes to create an Ellen Original. The Cosmo with the Edge. Because I’m edgy. Yah. T’will be unveiled tomorrow.
In the meantime, consider this:
Cosmopolitan #3 from the Drink Pro Lite App
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. cranberry juice cocktail(sweeter than juice!)
1/2 oz. Lime juice
Shake all but the wedge and strain. Garnish with wedge.
Color: just a hair less pink than the pinkest. Barbie’s kid sister
Refreshing factor: Quite, but bracing
Balance: a bit strong of an alcohol finish
Really quite decent. But I missed that citron vodka.
