Christmas Cosmo


The weekend before last, while in New York and Hoboken we celebrated Nicole's birthday and housewarming all at once while giving it a Christmas theme. We attempted (or shall I say, I attempted) rather unsuccessfully to throw together a Christmasy cocktail that was roughly based on a cosmo/cranberry vodka. I decided to work with this challenge and actually perfect the drink...for next time ;) Its really simple, I stuck with a basic cosmo recipe and added pomegranate to give it a seasonal flavor. 

You'll need :
[1] Regular vodka
[2] Triple Sec
[3] Cranberry Juice or Cranberry Pomegranate juice
[4] Whole lime
[5] Fresh pomegranates 

To make one drink :
[1] 1 part vodka
[2] 1 part Triple Sec
[3] 2 parts Cranberry
[4] Lime juice - half a lime squeezed 
[5] Combine over ice in shaker and shake vigorously 
[6] Pour over fresh pomegranates 
[7] Garnish with lime wedges

Happy cocktail-ing and holiday partying :)

    1. Thank you Nate! It totally does, I also really like floating them in champagne for a fun flavor twist.

      Hope you and Lucy are feeling better :)
