Ginger Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

One of Joanne’s favorite cocktails is a classic cosmopolitan cocktail. So, we thought we would add a little twist. The classic recipe has cranberry juice, some kind of orange liquor and lime juice. For this ginger cosmopolitan cocktail we used white cranberry juice instead of regular cranberry juice. Then, we muddled fresh, spicy ginger for an extra punch of flavor. It was delicious!

Just stumbled upon your site & cannot wait to try some your other recipes!

I made this cocktail tonight & it was delicious! Great flavor & enough ginger zing for my husband to declare that it is his new favorite drink. Will make again & again.

Good recipe and excellent pics! I like Gran Gala for an orange liquer, and used slightly less than the recipe called for. Also used low sugar red cranberry juice, and a dash of agave syrup, because it was on hand. Joined the list of favorite drinks!
