One of my favorite things about visiting my parents is how Mom and I always end up with a drink in hand. Lately it’s been French Martinis, but this weekend, we tried a new recipe from the cookbook I gave her earlier this month (a thank you for hours of painting and yard work at our house). These cosmos were wonderfully sweet. Make sure you throw them in the shaker before serving – we didn’t and they were seriously strong. Enjoy!

Pomegranate Cosmos

Adapted from Barefoot Contessa‘s Back to Basics

Yields 6 drinks


  • 2 c. good quality vodka
  • 1 c. Grand Marnier, Contreau or other organe liquor
  • 1 c. cranberry juice
  • 1/2 c. pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 c. fresh lime juice (from about 3 limes)
  • lime peals, for garnish

Combine all ingredients except lime peals in a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, fill a shaker with ice and add cosmos. Shake until chilled and serve, garnished with lime.
