Ok, so you think you’ve tasted THE Cosmo… maybe you have. It isn’t bright pink by the way. It isn’t so sugary sweet that you pucker up as you swallow it down. That’s something else entirely… The Lady’s Cosmo sets the tone for classic with orange bitters that hit the high note of “yea, that’s what I’m sayin’”. If there isn’t an orange sitting around to zest or flame for that matter, no worries. Bitter up and call it good. This one is a go getter all on its own.
1-1/2 measure Citrus Vodka
1/2 measure Premium Orange Liqueur
3/4 measure Cranberry Juice
1/2 measure Fresh Lime Juice
3 dashes Orange Bitters
Orange Peel Garnish
