Hi there. I am interested in making this for group setting. How long will it stay good for? I plan on using a save Bacardi bottle. Thank you.
I recommend making these cosmos the morning of for the best taste. You can store them for up to 3 days in the refrigerator, though!
What kind of cranberry juice? Sweetened, unsweetened, cranberry juice cocktail?
What you prefer for your taste!
Try Ocean Spray Pure or another brand of REAL…100% Cranberry Juice it will give you a fresher tasting cocktail. I would avoid the ones that say just “100% juice”…those usually have apple juice in them and it completely changes the taste.
All my friends are going to pretend that they discovered this amazing recipe.
