Cranberry Cosmopolitan

Cranberry Cosmopolitan

July 23, 2020

A Cosmopolitan is a drink I’ve never tried until I started experimenting with recipes for this Shrubbie. I was pleasantly surprised by what my Cosmo turned out to be. Light and citrusy, easy to make and even easier to enjoy. As we promised in a previous Shrubbie recipe(the Pineapple Margarita), we’re putting Triple Sec to use again in this incredible drink.


There are many different variations of the Cosmopolitan with only minor alterations. In ours, instead of using the classic cranberry juice, we’ve substituted that for Cranberry Orange Shrub. And while we’ve suggested in our recipe to use plain vodka instead of the traditional Vodka Citron, no need to worry about the citrus flavor not coming through. The orange in the shrub really shines through in tandem with the Triple Sec to make a very pleasant warm weather Shrubbie.


Ready in 3 minutes

Serves 1 drink


  • 1 1/12 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Triple Sec or similar orange liqueur
  • ½ oz Lime Juice(fresh squeezed is best!)
  • 1 oz Cranberry Orange Shrub
  • Lemon Zest Garnish


  • Add vodka, Triple Sec, Cranberry Orange Shrub, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker.
  • Shake on ice until very chilled.
  • Strain into a coupe glass(any smallish/wine glass will work)
  • Take lemon zest and spritz the oils over top of Shrubbie, before adding to drink.
  • Admire your craftsmanship and enjoy!


  1. After spritzing the lemon onto the Shrubbie if you rub it lightly around the rim of the glass a few times, the lemon addition will stand out even more.
