The Cosmopolitan. Inextricably linked with NYC, where its popularity was further elevated by a certain Miss Bradshaw and friends in the late nineties. The tart-sweet blend of vodka, cranberry and citrus has placed it firmly on the ‘classic cocktail’ list. Don’t dismiss the Cosmo because of its colour – who doesn’t love a bit of pink?!


  • 30ml of your preferred vodka (if you have a citrus one to hand even better)
  • 20ml Cointreau
  • 30ml cranberry juice
  • 10ml fresh lemon juice
  • Half a lime
  • Orange peel
  • Ice


  • Add all the liquid ingredients along with the ice to your Rusty Barrel shaker.
  • Shake for 8-10 seconds.
  • Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  • Garnish with a twist of orange peel.
