Ingredients

For the garnish

Method

  • STEP 1

    Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

  • STEP 2

    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.

RECIPE TIPS

TWISTS ON THE COSMO

1. Champagne cosmo:
Add a splash of champagne to the finished cocktail, then stir gently and serve.
2. Blue cosmo:
Substitute blue curaçao for triple sec and Ocean Spray white cranberry juice for the usual red. Some blue curaçaos are quite sweet, so you may want to up the lime a little.
3. Tequila cosmo:
Replace the vodka in your usual cosmo with a good quality, 100% blue agave tequila like Ocho or Olmeca Altos.
