My husband created this recipe for the upcoming New Year celebration. The cocktail is based on one of my favorites – the Cosmopolitan, but with some changes: it is more refreshing, not as strong as Cosmo, looks quite festive and very balanced.
A variety of cranberry based juice-cocktails can be used in the preparation of this drink to create a range of interesting tasting notes, which makes the cocktail quiet versatile. This is a really good drink for a New Year’s party.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
