Cosmopolitan

The perfect Cosmo is a thing of beauty.   It’s taken me a long time, but I now have developed the recipe that I consider better than any other.

  • 1 shot Ronin Blood Orange Syrup
  • 1 shot Triple Sec
  • 1 shot Vodka
  • Cranberry juice
  • 1 orange
  • Ice

(This drink is suitable for layering… if you know how to do it).

Cut a piece of the orange (generous piece of peel + some of the fruit flesh) and set aside.    Juice the rest of the orange and add to the glass.   Add the syrup, triple sec, and vodka.  Add the ice and the cranberry juice.

Hold the orange peel up to a flame briefly to release the oils (not enough to turn it black!).    Add to the glass.

Enjoy immediately.
