- 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.
- Shake ingredients with ice in a mason jar
- Strain into a cocktail glass.
- 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.
