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!
