White Cosmopolitan Recipe

White Cosmopolitan

The White Cosmopolitan Cocktail (or White Cosmo) is a simple variation on the original Cosmopolitan recipe. It uses white cranberry juice instead of red cranberry juice, giving it a crisp, white color without sacrificing any of the tartness that makes this such an iconic drink. Citrus vodka is recommended, but a standard straight vodka will do just fine.


1.5 oz citrus vodka
0.75 oz Cointreau orange liqueur
0.5 oz fresh lime juice
Splash white cranberry juice
Orange twist for garnish

Preparation: How to make a White Cosmopolitan
