This is a favorite drink at our house. We rarely order expensive cocktails in restaurants or bars. Why pay $12 when you can make it at home. And I swear the thought of a Cosmo at dinner is one of the only things that gets me through a boring 1/2 session on the StairMaster.
I'm still using my tried and true cocktail shaker from college. I organized a couple dinner dances for my sorority and ordered these as take away gifts. My college boyfriend probably sold his for 10 cents at a thrift sale long ago. The funny thing is I never made cocktails in college. I'm not really sure what I drank with my mac and cheese or ramen noodles. But it wasn't cosmos. I can tell you that. Drinks were something that you only guzzled in bars. The good old days...
This makes 2 drinks...
4 shots vodka
3 shots cranberry juice cocktail
1/2 shot Grand Marnier liqueur
2 large lime sections
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add liquid ingredients. Then squeeze both lime sections in and throw in the rinds. Shake and pour. You should get 4 delicious pours out of this. Happy days!
