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