Christmas Cosmo

And for the last cocktail I’ll be making this year with DIY Cocktails, allow me to introduce the Christmas Cosmo.
This drink takes the cranberry sorbet recipe I introduced earlier this week and uses it to turn a regular Cosmopolitan into something festive. With the addition of sorbet, the drink takes on some of the texture of a Strawberry Margarita while still keeping the tartness of a properly made Cosmopolitan.
If you don’t want to make the sorbet, you can always buy some.

Christmas Cosmo

(Makes 1 cocktail)

    2 oz cranberry sorbet
    1/2-1 oz vodka (depending on how strong you want it)
    1/2 oz Cointreau
    1/4 oz freshly squeezed lime juice


With a shot glass, scoop out 2 ounces worth of cranberry sorbet and place in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, cointreau, and lime juice. With a knife or muddler, swish the sorbet in the liquids until it loosens. Shut the cocktail shaker and shake thoroughly. (Alternately, you can use a blender for this.) Pour into a glass and garnish with sugared cranberries or a lime wedge.
Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!
I am taking the rest of the year off to work on other projects. Blogging will resume on Monday, January 3, 2011.
Have a great holiday, folks.
