White Cosmopolitan

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Patricia Richards’s White Cosmo might be a good choice for anyone embarrassed to be seen drinking Sex and the City’s signature cocktail, with its telltale pink color. She created the drink a few years ago; right away it started outselling the classic version, and it’s still more popular.

  1. Ice
  2. 2 ounces vodka, preferably Level
  3. 1/2 ounce Cointreau or other triple sec
  4. 1 ounce chilled white cranberry juice
  5. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  6. 1/2 teaspoon Simple Syrup
  7. 3 frozen cranberries, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka, Cointreau, juices and Simple Syrup and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the cranberries.
