I've been drinking cosmopolitans for 5 years, and you rarely find a bartender who can make one correctly. My favorite bartender is quitting and has finally let me in on her secret. Grand Marnier. Who'd have thought? I realize it is expensive, but if you want the best, you have to pay for it. This recipe will make an addict out of you. Not so sure that's a good thing - but one thing is for sure - this is the best cosmo you will ever taste in your entire life. Period!

best I've found so far, ran out of triple sec though... Also I used regular vodka because I also like traditional martini's, but I imagine I'd like it better with the citron. i used gran gala which is compared to grand marnier, although I've never had the fancy stuff so i cant say which is better. the rest the kept the same. thanks for the recipe the amounts were perfect and also easy to remember which makes me happy :) Read More

Why would you have triple sec and grand marnier? They are essentially the same product with different names. Also wheres the citrus? Read More

You need to add 1 more part cranberry juice, otherwise it is too strong! Read More

I added one more part cranberry juice and used 1/2 oz. lemon juice instead of lime. Very very good and the second one tasted even better:) Read More
