"The Peach Cosmo"

The Cosmopolitan (Cosmo) will always hold a special place in my heart: it was the first drink I learned how to make when I started bartending.

Who would have known customers at a bar in Elburn, IL would love Cosmos so much. I suppose Carrie from “Sex in the City“ helped bring the cocktail widespread. It’s still a go to cocktail for me at private events today. There are several versions of the Cosmo, but the one below is the 11th Hour Bartending special. It substitutes Peach Vodka for the traditional Vodka and uses a splash of orange juice for sweetness.     

 

Level of Difficulty:  Easy

Ingredients needed: peach vodka, triple sec, orange juice, cranberry juice, and a peach

Tools needed: Shaker, pourer or jigger, Martini glass

Directions:

  1. Cut the Peach into thin slices for garnish
  2. Fill the martini glass with ice and water to chill it
  3. Add a scoop of ice into the shaker
  4. Add 2 oz of peach vodka into the shaker (Peach Ciroc or New Amsterdam Peach suggested)
  5. Add ¼ oz triple sec into shaker
  6. Add 1/3 oz orange juice into shaker
  7. Add 1 ½ oz of cranberry juice into the shaker
  8. Shake the shaker for 20-30 seconds
  9. Remove the ice from the martini glass
  10. Strain into the martini glass and garnish with a peach
  11. Enjoy!
