White Cranberry Cosmo

My signature drink is usually cranberry and vodka, but once in a while I like to change it up a bit. Using white cranberry juice instead of regular cranberry juice was an ingenious exchange if I do say so myself. This cosmo has definitely become a new fave of mine. It is fruity and sweet, just like I like it. My favorite part of the drink are the frozen cranberries dredged in sugar. It really makes the drink look festive! This recipe makes 2 to 3 drinks. I tripled this recipe and put all all the ingredients in a pitcher to serve at a party and that worked too. Just make sure you keep the cranberries on the side so that the sugar doesn't float to the bottom of the pitcher.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup white cranberry juice
  • 4-5 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce sweetened lime juice
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • granulated sugar
Recipe:
  • Make the cranberries at least 3-4 hours before you are planning to serve the drinks.
  • To make the cranberries, rinse the cranberries with water.
  • While they are still wet, dredge them in sugar.
  • Spread them evenly on a pan and freeze for 3-4 hours.
  • Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add the cranberry juice, vodka, cointreau, and lime juice.
  • Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass.
  • Add ice and garnish with the sugared cranberries.
