This Twisted Frozen Cosmo is a great variation of the classic cosmopolitan cocktail. Using Everclear® in place of high proof vodka & adding some homemade cranberry liquor makes for a Cosmopolitan like you have never had before!
I absolutely LOVE taking classics & really changing them up with twists that are outside the box. It’s really what I do best. Because when you have something that’s already a favorite – it makes it so easy to change a couple things & really take it to a whole new level. I was wanting something refreshing, classy & pretty too & I was also wanting to use my martini glasses because they are just so much fun. I started thinking about what I could make & decided on a cosmo. So when I took a look at the classic cosmopolitan cocktail (which I have never shared here before) I knew I could make it even better with just a few small changes. One thing was for sure – aside from some key ingredient changes, I knew I wanted to make this one frozen for a refreshing way to relax in the heat of the summer.
I looked through my bar & thought that using Everclear® in place of high proof vodka would really give this cocktail the twist I was looking for. I also thought that adding some homemade cranberry liquor made with Everclear® would make a great addition & really kick up the cranberry flavor.
It turned out just as I imagined. Fresh & pretty with the perfect blend of flavors. Perfect for a sunny, late afternoon cool down.
So tell me, what would you make with Everclear®?
