The Eventful Innovations Cosmopolitan Martini

After being told that our martini is better than some our guests have tried in restaurants, we felt it was time to publish another drink recipe for our friends and followers.

This clean, tasty cocktail is a favourite during the holiday season when garnished with frozen cranberries, or can be served any time of the year with a fresh lime garnish.  Remember, never use anything other than 100% cranberry juice and fresh squeezed lime.

Please read, try and enjoy!

1.5 oz Stolichnaya or other vodka (the better the vodka the better the martini)
0.5 oz Cointreau
Juice of one freshly squeezed lime*
2 oz. Cranberry Juice (not Cranberry Cocktail)

Place six ice cubes in your martini shaker, pour all ingredients in shaker over ice.  Let sit for a minute or two, then shake well to thoroughly chill and pour into martini glass.  Garnish with three frozen cranberries, or if garnishing with a lime slice, cut lime slice off of lime before squeezing.
