Happy Hour Tuesday: Limoncello Cosmopolitan

Rometti Limoncello Cosmopolitan

If you have been watching the controversial tv show Sex and the City, or if you happened to watch it because your girlfriend forced you after that one night you made her watch for the tenth time your favorite action movie, well.. Then it’s very likely that you might have noticed Carrie Bradshaw and her friends are often sipping on a pink cocktail served in a martini glass, which thanks to the show has become one of the most glamorous, girl-popular cocktails, the Cosmopolitan.

The Cosmopolitan is a classic sour cocktail that seems to have originated in South Beach, Florida. It was in Manhattan though that a girl named Melissa Huffsmith introduced the recognizable pink color to make it look like pink lemonade.

The original recipe combines two parts lemon vodka to one part triple sec (often Cointreau) with the addition of lime juice and a splash of cranberry juice to give it a pink color.

The Rometti Limoncello Cosmopolitan is a variation of the classic Cosmopolitan, it enhances the lemon taste by adding a fresh, sweet flavor that brings down a little bit of the sourness. Although girls have to say goodbye to the glamourous pink color, Limoncello Cosmopolitan with its orange tones is a delicious, fruity drink equally appreciated by both men and women.

Ingredients:

3/4 oz Vodka
1/4 oz Cranberry juice
1/4 oz Rometti Limoncello
A splash of fresh lime juice
Ice cubes

Pour the vodka, the cranberry juice, the lime juice and the Rometti Limoncello in a shaker filled for three fourths with ice. Shake well, and pour the mixer into a martini glass. You can garnish it with fresh cranberries, lime or lemon wedge or twist.

ENJOY! ~
