The Cosmocello is a simple variation on the original Cosmopolitan recipe that substitutes limoncello in place of the fresh lime juice. Thanks to that extra citrusy kick, you don’t really need to use citrus-flavored vodka, but you’re welcome to if you’re so inclined.


1.5 oz citrus-flavored vodka
1 oz Cointreau
0.5 oz limoncello
Splash cranberry juice
Lemon twist for garnish

Preparation: How to make a Cosmocello

  1. Add vodka, Cointreau, limoncello, and cranberry juice to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with a lemon twist and serve.
