Cranberry sorbet turns a classic cocktail into a beautiful holiday treat. This Christmas Cosmo has the appeal of a traditional Cosmopolitan with the added oomph of a dessert … all without being too sweet.
- 2 oz cranberry sorbet
- ½-1 oz vodka
- ½ oz Cointreau
- ¼ oz freshly-squeezed lime juice
With a shot glass, scoop out 2 ounces worth of cranberry sorbet and place in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, Cointreau, and lime juice. With a knife or muddler, swish the sorbet in the liquids until it loosens. Shut the cocktail shaker and shake thoroughly. (Alternately, you can use a blender for this.) Pour into a glass and garnish with sugared cranberries or a lime wedge.
