This wonderful watermelon cosmo cocktail recipe is so delicious that once you drink it, you will want it to star in your cocktail rotation!
I remember the day when a cosmopolitan was made one way and one way only. Vodka, triple sec, lime and cranberry. Today, they have all different flavors.
I’ve made a few variations myself:
But this time, it’s fun because I ventured into making my own watermelon infused vodka. Making infused vodka is fun and easy so I’d recommend you do it at least once!!
What type of cosmo do you like? Do you like the original or do you like the ‘newfangled’ ones?
Inquiring minds would like to know.
I’ll freely claim that my favorite cosmo is the blueberry mint cosmo.
On to the recipe!
Do you see that watermelon infused vodka? Do you? DO YOU?
So we have the watermelon infused vodka, before I’ve fished out the chunks. We also have Cointreau, lime juice and cranberry juice.
Let’s get started.
Yes, the cocktail shaker needs its own heading! Let’s fill that sucker halfway with ice!
Now, I measure out 2 ounces of watermelon infused vodka.
I pour the vodka in the cocktail shaker!
Time to measure out 3/4 ounce of Cointreau!
Oh, cocktail shaker, where are you? Oh, there you are, my beloved!
I pour the Cointreau in.
I squeeze a lime and measured out 3/4 ounce.
Into the shaker it goes!
I measure out 1 ounce of cranberry juice.
Time for the cranberry juice to meet the rest of the ingredients.
I cap the shaker and shake, shake, shake it at least 20 times.
I grab my martini glass and strain the contents into it. I also spear 2 fresh watermelon chunks on my martini pick and plop them in the cocktail.
Shall we see the vertical view?
Yes, we shall.
It is so delicious!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe!
