White Cosmo

Day 315



White Cosmo
4 shots out of 5


The holidays for us are done.  Can I believe it?  No, no I can't.  In a little less then a week it will be New Years Eve and then we all begin 2013 on the very next day.  I look forward to New Years Eve every year.  We get together with a good group of friends and bring in the New Year in style.  Drinking style that is!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I found the recipe at hostess with the mostess.  The recipe on that site lets you choose between 1 ounce and 2 ounces of vodka.  I used 1 ounce, but now think that I should have used a little bit more.  I think another 1/4 to 1/2 ounce more of vodka would have been more to my liking, but you can be the judge when/if you make it.  I think white cranberry juice is a nice change in cocktails, although I believe I like the Simply Cranberry cocktail juice the best.  All in all this is a nice refreshing cocktail.  The one ingredient that stands out the most is the lime juice, but NOT by a whole lot.  I'm glad I tried this cocktail and if you try it as well, I'd love to hear what you think about it.

Here is the recipe for a White Cosmo:

  • 1 oz vodka (or more if you would like, I recommend more)
  • 2 oz white cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz cointreau
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass and enjoy!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to there being 5 more days left of this year and 51 more days left of my Year Of Cocktails!

Cheers!!
