Stuff I like: the classic cosmpolitan

I don't care if cosmopolitans are oh-so-90s. They're pink, they're strong, and they're seriously delicious, which make them a modern classic in my book. Cosmos are inextricably linked with Sex in the City and chick lit, but I have at least one male friend who not only loves them, but orders them in bars. Good drinks are good drinks.

Cosmopolitan (serves 1)
1.5 fluid oz vodka (my favorites are Tito's, Grey Goose, and Valentine)
1/2 fluid oz Cointreau
1.5 fluid oz cranberry juice
juice from 1/4 lime

Pour everything into a shaker with lots of ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime twist or wedge, if desired.
