The Winter Cosmopolitan

Cosmos may typically bring to mind refreshing summer sipping during a hot night on the town. But just because the weather is cold doesn’t mean you can’t warm up with this wintery take on the classic cosmopolitan, with a healthy measure of cognac in place of vodka to keep your fire going.

  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ½ ounces Courvoisier Exclusif
  • ½ ounce DeKuyper Triple Sec
  • 2 ounces cranberry juice
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously to chill. Strain into chilled martini/coup glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
