Sapphire Gin Cosmo, on the rocks

Submitted by: WAIT4IT
Sapphire Gin Cosmo, on the rocks

Introduction

This cosmo has just enough sweetness and tartness to take the edge off the dryness of the gin while still remaining potent and with a clean aftertaste. While the gin flavor does get masked with the flavors of the other ingredients, it adds a definite spicyness to the drink.

Ingredients

    1 oz Cointreau
    1 oz Sapphire Gin
    1/4 oz lemon juice (1/2 Tbsp or 2 wedges)
    1/4 oz lime juice (1/2 Tbsp or 2 wedges)
    2 1/2 oz Cranberry Cocktail or juice, chilled (5 Tbsp or 2 scant 1.5 oz jiggers)
    Ice (2-3 cubes)

Directions

Place ice in old-fashioned glass. Pour gin and cointreau over ice. Stir about 10 seconds with the ice. Add lemon and lime juices, then slosh in the cranberry juice (use cranberry cocktail if a sweeter drink is desired). Stir drink once or twice around, and enjoy.
==================

----Note: As most martini glasses are filled to 3 oz, this recipe makes enough for 2 if you wish to serve it up.
---To serve it "up": Use a glass that can hold the entire amount. Add ice (use crushed ice if possible), then add the liquor, and stir for at least 30 seconds (or use a shaker if you're not particular). Add the juices, stir (or shake) for about ten seconds, and strain into glasses.

  • This is a very potent drink, but you'd never know it! It went over amazingly well for a small gathering at my house. I think we went through a dozen for the 5 of us drinking them (ouch!) - 3/29/09
