Minty Cosmopolitan

July 17, 2011

in Easy Updates for Cooking & Cocktailing

Looking for a quick fix to update your standard cosmo? I love adding a few sprigs of mint to my mixer for a bright, crisp & cooling layer of flavor – no muddling required! Just modify your favorite recipe or try mine below. Another great twist on this classic cocktail is to use a more exotic strain of mint, like chocolate or pineapple mint. I’ve found quite a few varieties at my local farmer’s market. Enjoy!

1 ounce vodka

½ ounce triple sec

1 ounce cranberry juice (preferably not from concentrate)

½ ounce Rose’s Lime

4 or 5 sprigs of mint

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake very well – you want the mint bruise and release the oils. Stain into a martini glass and serve.
