This is a good cocktail, like most bars make it. The secret to an awesome Cosmo is using 1 tsp. of Roses Lime Juice instead of lime. It balances tart of cranberry. You can get Roses at most grocery stores. Read More

This is an amateur cosmo - it might as well be a Cape Cod with all of that cranberry juice. A real cosmo is barely pink - martini-style. The way this recipe is written it should just be served over ice - maybe add a splash of club soda. Read More

This is really good. I have always liked cosmos and wanted to make one myself...i felt like such a pro! One great variation is to use white cranberry juice it looks very pretty gaining only a very slight green color from the lime juice. Men seem to be more receptive to the "non-pink" drink as well!:o) Read More

Very strong but oh-so-smooth and quite tasty (!!) so watch out. I made ice-cold pitchers of these for a party rented cosmopolitan glasses and the women were wild about them. The men weren't too crazy about the idea of drinking pink drinks so they stuck to the beer though. Read More

Fabulous drink! I just love these especially after a rough day. The only thing I do different is to garnish with a lemon twist vs. a lime twist. Read More
