The Cosmo Cocktail – Easy!

The Cosmo Cocktail – Easy!

The Cosmo Cocktail

The Cosmo a totally classic vodka cocktail and dead easy to make. It could actually be my most favourite cocktail, well….. definitely in my top 3! 

I know it’s a bit 90’s thanks to Carrie and the girls from Sex in the City but who cares?  

It’s a classic! A total classic 

A good hit of vodka, some sweetness and a dash of lime to give it that slightly sour edge.

I really do enjoy a good Cosmo and this one is sooooo good and really simple to make!




NYC Cocktail 

It used to be my go to drink when we were in NYC and it still reminds me of New York to this day.

I think over that time I probably drank way too many of them. Hey Ho!

The only thing you may need to buy triple sec really as I think you probably have the other ingredients.

However Triple Sec is actually a  great drink cupboard faithful and perfect with pancakes too, yes it is!


Another Vodka Cocktail 

If you like Vodka, then another one of my all time faves is the Vodka Espresso Martini.

I just love them.

I am a coffee addict and one of these at the end of the evening just finishes it off perfectly for me.

(Be careful not to drink too many before bed as the caffeine from the coffee means you might struggle to sleep 🙂 )
