I was making a Cosmo for myself and I didn't have any triple sec, so I used peach schnapps and loved it.
The cosmopolitan, typically referred to as the 'cosmo,' gained popularity during the 1990s when it was frequently mentioned on the television show Sex and the City. The combination of vodka, orange liqueur, lime juice, and cranberry juice have made it a timeless classic.
Perfect Pitcher of Pink Raspberry Cosmopolitans
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.
Concord Cosmopolitan Martini
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!
Cosmopolitan with Grand Marnier®
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!
This is a great drink for folks who like the presentation of a martini, but can't stomach the strong alcohol taste. The cranberry juice takes the bite right out of this drink and gives it a smooth taste.
