Ingredients (6)

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 3/4 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau or triple sec
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Ice
  • Lime slice, for garnishing


During the late 1990s, it was impossible to enter a bar and not hear a few ladies (and occasionally some dudes) declare, “I’ll have a Cosmo!” Nowadays, the drink carries a shroud of shame—it’s pink and passé after all—but it’s still a tasty cocktail that packs a punch.


  1. 1Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.
  2. 2Combine the vodka, cranberry juice, Cointreau or triple sec, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker and fill it halfway with ice. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted. Strain into the chilled glass and garnish with the lime slice.
