i'll feed em to the pigs shall i?
. . . ,,its fabulous . . all girls gone wild with this cocktail drink . . . especially when i make it . . . , ?
This can be a great fun cocktail to make if you flambé an orange peel over the top. Cut an inch wide, 2 inch long strip of orange peel. Hold the orange peel in your thumb and forefinger and hold lighter in front (just touching) for about 3 seconds, then squeeze the peel hard, releasing all the oils which light and set fire. Then wipe around rim of glass and drop in, skin side up. Brilliant garnish!

Actually rather bland in all honesty and only popular due to its pink colour and fame from Sex and the city. Vodka drinkers will probably find drinks like a brown hen or russian seven far tastier if not as physically attractive or fashionable.

Delicious, perfect combination.

Perfect cosmo:50ml Absolut raspberri35ml Cointreauhalf a lime squeased75ml Cranberry juicePut all the ingredients into a boston shaker, muddle in 2 strawberries, add Ice and shake quick and hard, fine strain into a tall martini glass that has been rimmed with sugar, zest with orange peel, and garnish with a slice of strawberry! Perfecto!!
by flair it up!
This drink is just fantastic so sex in the city!
We liked it but it was really strong so added a couple of parts of tonic water and another part of cranberry - it went down a treat!
too much cranberry original recipe was pink but too often cosmos are served red now. Also must be served w/ lemon vodka. Interesting variant is the Metropolitan w/ kurrant vodka. Flaming orange to finish.
this is the best drink ever !!! especially if you go to the LOUNGE in LARGS they make a killer cosmo .
Finish it off by cutting a circle of orange peel, bending it so it is concave and using a lighter to heat it up, after about 10 sec it will spit if u then point it at the glass and squeeze the oils in the orange peel will ignite in a big fireball and coat the surface of the drink giving a nice zesty taste, oh and dnt remove the lighter when u squeeze
Try make it with 1 1/2 parts cointreau, and 1 part vodka (instead of vice versa), add a few drops of sweet n sour mix, its beautiful

For a single serve in a martini glass you can assume 1 part = either 25ml or 35ml depending on the size of your glassware and on how generous you want to be!
Re. first comment. . a part is whatever you want it to be, that's the point. It depends on how many drinks you want to make. As long as the ratios remain the same then it doesn't matter what the measurement is. Just use one and a half times as much vodka as you do cranberry and cointreau. Not too difficult.
Think sophistication, think Cosmo; it's that simple.
When you say part, how much do you mean? a part could mean anything!!!!!!how much in ml?
I drink these all the time thanks to Sex & thr City. . . . DE-LISH!
This is the nicest drink ever I first got aquainted in the carribaen and have been hooked ever since must admit its nasty if not mixed properly but perfectly yummie when mixed well!!
Reminds of the a day by the pool in sunny Florida. . .
very tasty,great after taste, the lime juice makes all the difference if prepared correctly.
this is such a chic drink, typical sex and the city and whoever drinks it gets my vote, carrie bradshaw all the way!
Very sharp, extremely tasty drink (when made correctly - which unfortunately doesnt seem to be that often!) *****

A new age "chic" classic. a versatile drink, gorgeous if made correctly. alot of argument over the perfect garnish. flamed orange peel makes all the difference.
by Chris Kitson (mixologist)

What Would we do without 'Sex and the city' *** Best Cocktail Ever. . . . . .
I love this drink, its got a sharp edge but a very smooth and fruity taste. I have about four or five in a night out and it tastes just as good as it looks. This is a real elegance drink strictly for the ladies who know they have style and wish to ooze sophistication and glamour!
The Indigo Bar in Chinatown, Honolulu, presents the mandarin cosmo (using Absolut Mandarin) for the vodka part. Ask barman George for it - its not on the menu.

I made this with white cranberry juice. It was preferred by most as it was not overy sweet.
LOOP IN CROYDON ASK 4 KIERON HIS COSMOS ARE JUST HEAVEN HE SHOWED ME HIS BLACK COSMO WHAT A MIND BLOWER
To Epsimax: Look in frozen section of grocer. It is hard to find, but some stores do have the pure jucie and not the 'coctail' version. You can also look in the natural foods section and find unsweetened pure cranberry juice.
Easy to drink and beautiful color its good for party,
Hi I'm french and i try to find cranberry juice but it's verry hard to find it. Anybody know how i can find it or can i subsitute it?
Yes Yes Yes I love this drink.
