Island Cosmo

Day 106


Island Cosmo
5 shots out of 5


I have been wanting to do a Cosmo........but just haven't found a good recipe for one.  We had tried one a while back and didn't like it, so I vowed that when I do this blog, I will not post a cosmo until I find a good recipe for it.  That's where tonight's cocktail comes in.  Now I know this isn't the original cosmo, but hey......I wouldn't be The Cocktail Lady if I couldn't mix it up a bit (pun definitely intended).  

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I really like this cocktail.  I told my husband that the Island Cosmo is very yummy and very dangerous.  I got this recipe from the Malibu website.  The rum and citrus vodka together make a very yummy taste, and I like the fact that they use pomegranate juice instead of cranberry juice.  I think "someone" should definitely bring a bottle of the Smirnoff citrus vodka to the BBQ on Saturday......hint hint.........wink wink........I really think that would be a good idea!  This cocktail will most definitely be on my list of cocktails to make and enjoy one night real soon!!

Here is the recipe for Island Cosmo:

  • 1 shot coconut rum
  • 1/3 shot citrus vodka
  • 1/3 shot lime juice
  • 1/2 shot pomegranate juice
In a shaker, add ice, rum, vodka, lime juice and pomegranate juice.  Shake everything up real well and strain into a martini glass.  Sit back and enjoy this extra yummy cocktail!

Thank You Malibu for this fabulous cocktail recipe!  I am enjoying this cocktail and know that I will enjoy another one very soon!

Cheers!!

  1. You're right that this is a dangerous one - it was good enough that I had a second and if I didn't have a smidgen of self control, I'd make another :) I ran out of citron vodka, so I squeezed a little lemon juice in with my regular vodka - it was still VERY good. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Looks good will try it at next party. If you're looking for a Cosmopolitan, the recipe is:

    2 parts Cranberry Juice
    2 parts Vodka
    1 part Lime Juice
    1/2 part Triple-Sec

    Shake and strain into Martini glass.

    Btw most of these "martini" drinks nowadays are nothing more than the Kamikaze plus juice .

    1. Thank You for the recipe!! I will write it down and try it! I found "too many" different versions of the Cosmopolitan and tried a couple of them and did NOT like them......either did the friends we had over (so I know it wasn't just me).

      Let me know what you think of the Island Cosmo when you do try it!
