Having a Friday night cocktail to mark the end of the week has long been something I’ve enjoyed, there’s nothing quite like it. A Cosmo is a classic cocktail, and with both lime juice & cranberry juice it surely counts as one of my five-a-day right? RIGHT?

Ingredients (enough for 2)

120ml vodka

120ml cranberry juice

60ml freshly squeezed lime juice

60ml Cointreau

A splash of gomme / sugar syrup if it takes your fancy


  1. Tip all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker half filled with ice.
  2. Pop the lid on, wrap a tea-towel around the shaker so your hands don’t stick to it like Jeff Daniel’s tongue in Dumb & Dumber.
  3. Shake for a good 30 seconds. Or more. Just go for it.
  4. Strain into cocktail glasses.
  5. Aaaaaaand relax.
