How to Make a Cosmopolitan

Whether you want to  make a Cosmo for yourself, for you and a couple of friends, or for a whole party, this easy Cosmo recipe is for you. Learn how to make a Cosmopolitan for one or for 6 (or more). 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!

How to Make a Cosmopolitan (for one):

  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
  2. You can store the mixture in the fridge until ready to serve
  3. Pour a single serving into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake
  4. Pour into a glass and garnish with an orange twist (or a flamed orange peel for the perfect presentation!)

Serve as many people as you need to by making multiple pitchers. Or just whip up a couple of quick drinks for you and a friend. This is one of my favorite drinks to order at bars, so I love that I can make it at home without the bar price tag.
