Peach Cosmo

Rating: 5 stars 10

A festive twist on a favorite drink: the cosmo.

Perfect Pitcher of Pink Raspberry Cosmopolitans

Rating: 5 stars 11
Having the girls over? This is the perfect party drink and you can count on it disappearing. Using Rose's lime juice prevents the cloudiness of real lime, it's so pretty. Sweet without the harsh taste of alcohol. Be careful of addiction! It's that good.

Cosmopolitan with Grand Marnier®

Rating: 5 stars 32
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!

Concord Cosmopolitan Martini

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
Great martini or cosmo depending where you live! I use Ciroc vodka which isn't like any other vodka because it is distilled from fine French grapes. You can actually taste the grape in the vodka!

Skinny Cosmopolitan

Rating: 5 stars 1
To save calories, the aromatic oils in citrus zest replace the Triple Sec liqueur usually used in this classic cocktail.
