Belvedere Pink Grapefruit Cosmo

This recipe, utilizing Belvedere's Pink Grapefruit flavored vodka, is a delicious twist on a classic cosmo and adds an extra citrusy and subtle summer feel. Belvedere is a little more expensive than what I normally drink, but their Pink Grapefruit flavor is definitely worth a little splurging!

1.5 oz Belvedere Pink Grapefruit
¼ oz lime juice
¼ oz premium triple sec
½ oz Ocean Spray 100% Cranberry juice

1. Shake with cubed ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
2. Garnish with an orange twist or lime wedge.
