Metro Mexico

I like to experiment with the Cosmopolitan.  There is something about cranberry and lime juice which works really well for my palate.   My handy dandy cocktail book, 1001 Cocktails: 1001 Recipes for the Perfect Drink (Hardcover) ~ Alex Barker (Compiler) gives the recipe for the Cosmopolitan on page 178.  I followed the lead in Alex Barker’s book, tweaked it for a particular Tequila and came up with what I call Metro Mexico.  When I made this Cosmopolitan style cocktail  at a recent gathering of friends on a hot Sunday afternoon the response was overwhelmingly positive.

Metro Mexico

1 1/2 ounces Blanco Tequila
3/4 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce Cranberry juice
1/2 ounce Lime Juice
Bar spoon of  sugar syrup (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients over ice.
Strain into a suitable glass

Garnish with a lime slice

Please Remember, the aim of my blog is not to encourage you to drink more, it is to encourage you to drink better!!
