You’ll Need:

  • 45ml lemon vodka
  • 1ml triple sec
  • 30ml cranberry juice
  • 10ml lime juice
  • Ice, ice baby
  • And for the garnish - orange zest, or a lime wedge on the rim of the glass.

Method:

  1. Shake ingredients with ice in a mason jar
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. To make the garnish: hold a 3cm round piece of orange zest about 10cm above your cosmo and very carefully wave it over a lit match or lighter flame. Bend the outer edge of the zest in towards the flame so that the orange oils are released, then drop the zest into your drink.
