Cosmo Martini
I am enjoying my newest adventure of trying new cocktails and martinis. Here is a new cocktail to try with a distinct lime flavor with some tartness tempered with the sweetness of triple sec. A refreshing cocktail! It has a good mixture of flavors! I like to use diet cranberry juice to reduce the calories. If you like less alcohol, you could reduce to 1/2 ounce of vodka and triple sec. Just be sure to increase the cranberry and lime juice to compensate. I hope you enjoy it!

1 ounce vodka
1 ounce triple sec
2 1/2 ounces cranberry juice, diet
1 ounce fresh lime juice

Add ice to a martini shaker. Add ingredients and shake until chilled. Pour into chilled martini glasses.

You can make this into a mocktail by removing the alcohol and trying the below combination of ingredients to get you started.

2 ounces cranberry juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
5 ounces club soda or seltzer

Add ice to a martini shaker. Add ingredients and shake until chilled. Pour into chilled martini glasses.

      This one is very good. I also love how it looks. They are so much fun to drink! I never had a “real” martini – only the specialty ones.
