The Faux Cosmo is a non-alcoholic take on the contemporary classic Cosmopolitan cocktail. This version replaces vodka with an energy drink and orange juice. I’m not a huge fan of energy drinks, but occasionally they just “work” in a recipe.
Garnish with fresh or frozen cranberries in the drink for a more festive look.
