Cosmopolitan (Martini version) 
 
 
BOLS Triple Sec
 
  Cocktail (martini) glass  
  Split lime wedge  
  Stir with ice  
59 mls BOLS Vodka
15 mls BOLS Triple Sec
30 mls Cranberry juice
  Use the best quality vodka you can get and good quality straight cranberry juice. For the garnish, squeeze a lime wedge in the pre-chilled glass, drop it in, then pour the stirred-with-ice-and-strained-straight-up drink over it. The more popular Sling tutti-frutti Cosmopolitan recipe is: 1.5oz lemon or other citrus vodka, 1.25oz. cranberry juice, 1oz. Bols Triple Sec, 0.25 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice, all shaken with ice and strained into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish for the Sling version Cosmopolitan is a flamed orange twist: hold the twist over a flame and twist it to let the flammable oils drip out, catch fire and caramelise, then drop it into the drink.  
  This classic version is said to be the West Coast original, having started life as a Bols Triple Sec and cranberry juice flavored vodka-martini served with a lime squeeze. Most Cosmopolitans these days are made to the East Coast Sling recipe: more lime juice, more cranberry juice and less vodka, which is invariably lemon or other citrus flavor. Famous variations include the Metropolitan (made with blackcurrant or other berry-flavored vodka) and the Rude Cosmopolitan (made with tequila instead of vodka). Some bartenders also recommend adding a couple of dashes of lime cordial (such as Roses's) and / or orange bitters and / or lemon juice to a Cosmopolitan recipe.
