This classic Cosmopolitan is simple, gorgeous… and pink. So it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.

There are loads of variations of Carrie’s favourite tipple, made famous by Sex and the City, but our preference is this heady mix of vodka and Cointreau with a splash of cranberry juice. Just make sure you use the highest quality ingredients available and don’t forget to pre-freeze the Martini glasses first.


  • 35ml vodka
  • 15ml Cointreau
  • Splash of cranberry juice to taste
  • Squeeze fresh lime juice
  • Twist of orange peel to garnish


Place the vodka, Cointreau, lime and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake hard and then strain into a frozen Martini glass. Hold the piece of orange peel over the glass and carefully flame with a match. Garnish the cocktail with the flamed orange peel and serve.
