A time tested recipe for Cosmopolitan Martinis, developed with input from experienced bartenders. Cool, clean and fresh tasting!


  • 3 1/2 tablespoons (1 3/4 ounces) really good vodka
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) Cointreau
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) sweetened cranberry juice (like Ocean Spray)
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) freshly squeezed lime juice (no substitutes!)
  • Slice or wedge of fresh lime, for garnish


  1. Fill martini or coupe glasses with ice water to quickly chill; let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and dry.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes (large cubes won’t melt as quickly as small cubes in the spirits and/or liqueur).
  3. Add all ingredients and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  4. Pour through a cocktail strainer into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Garnish with a slice or wedge of fresh lime.
