Cosmopolitans are the pinnacle of girly cocktails. While Sex in the City made them famous, I’m always looking for new and inventive ways to put a spin on this popular martini. While this recipe isn’t much different than a classic cosmo, the tartness from the fresh raspberries adds a delightful freshness to this lady-libation. Enjoy!
Squeeze a lime wedge into a glass and add the rind. Add 4-6 fresh raspberries and muddle in a glass with the lime wedge (make sure to extract oils from the lime rind). Add 1 ½ shots of citrus vodka, ½ a shot of Triple Sec, and a small splash of cranberry juice. Give a good shake with ice, strain and garnish with another lime wedge.
