Happy Hour Cosmopolitan Drink Recipe

The Cosmopolitan is a bright and easy-to-make cocktail with a variety of light flavors such as lime, orange, lemon and cranberry. It’s a vodka daisy which is a sour, made with fresh citrus and a liqueur like curacoa. If you’re looking for a more traditional Cosmopolitan, be sure to grab a lemon-accented citron vodka. The citrus accents are key to this drink. For the cranberry juice you want to go with a 100% unsweetened version. Refrain from cranberry juice cocktail as these are often packed with sugar, making it difficult to balance in a drink.
