If you are looking for the perfect cosmo, you have come to the right place. We love friends that will ask the chef or bartender for the “secret” to success. Thanks to Kendra’s friend, Carey…we have the secret. Oba! in Portland, OR has been making amazing martinis that keep us coming back for more. If you want a great variation, use white cranberry juice and add dried cranberries or dried blueberries in the bottom of the martini glass. These can be made by the pitcher a day ahead by multiplying everything by 8. Stick your pitcher in the freezer and pat yourself on the back!
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. vodka (or orange vodka)
3/4 oz. triple sec or cointreau
2 oz. cranberry juice
Shake all ingredients in shaker with ice, and pour into martini glass. Garnish with 2-3 cranberries, if desired.
