How to Make a Cosmo Spritz
January 27, 2022
And just like that, the cosmo gets a summery upgrade.
There’s a certain retro charm to the classic cosmopolitan. While for many of us the drink is associated with a certain zeitgeist-y TV show of the 90s, its origins are believed to go back as far back as the 1930s — well before Carrie and pals brought them into our living rooms.
But there’s still a lot to like about the combination of vodka, triple sec, cranberry and lime juice — especially when you can transform it into a more contemporary, refreshing serve with just one more ingredient.
We’ve teamed up with Grey Goose to showcase how you can level up your cocktail hour this summer with this refreshing take on the classic cosmo.
Don’t call it a comeback — the cosmo never went anywhere. Try this longer, lighter version of the classic to level up your summer cocktail hour.
40ml Grey Goose vodka
15ml fresh lime juice
35ml cranberry juice
35ml soda water
Orange peel, to garnish
Fill a wine or highball glass with ice, and add vodka, lime juice, Cointreau and cranberry juice. Top with cold soda water and garnish with a strip of orange peel to serve.
