There’s no reason to make a bunch of individual drinks when you can just make a whole pitcher. Although you do need to give a quick shake to each one before serving!

  1. Add all the ingredients except orange peel to a shaker and fill with ice.
  2. Shake, and strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.
  3. Garnish with a flamed orange peel or orange wheel.

How to Make a Cosmo (for a Crowd):

  1. Combine vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, & lime juice in a pitcher and stir
