The Cosmopolitan is made with four basic ingredients: fresh lime juice, orange liqueur, vodka and cranberry juice. It is made with homemade Orange Kumquat Liqueur (or Cointreau if none is available). If you do make your own Orange Kumquat Liqueur and give it away as a gift, then you can provide this recipe as a serving suggestion. Use 100% cranberry juice and fresh squeezed lime juice for best results.
- 1/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 1 oz Orange Kumquat Liqueur (or Cointreau)
- 1 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Cranberry Juice
Add fresh lime juice, vodka, Orange Kumquat Liqueur (or Cointreau) and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously until chilly. Serve in a Martini glass. Garnish with a flamed orange zest, floated on top.
