Ingredients

  • 4 cups ice, cubed or crushed
  • 3 cups vodka
  • cups cranberry juice
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons orange liqueur
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Chef notes

    I love cosmos in any way, shape or form, especially around the holidays. This is a strong one, so you may want to dilute it with a touch of pineapple or let it settle in the ice. But remember it is a martini and if you drink too many you will be saying "martooni!" Make sure you have a big pitcher on hand to make this drink, it's much easier to make batch cocktails if you're serving a few people. 

    Technique Tip: Add pineapple juice to sweeten or dilute the alcohol. 

    Swap Option: Use gin if you run out of vodka.
