My Pink Cosmopolitan Recipe is SUPER Yummy!
Similar to the Blue Cosmo, the Pink Cosmo is another variation to the classic cosmopolitan. Owing to its pink color and sweet taste, the pink cosmopolitan is usually more popular among the ladies. But this doesn’t mean a man can’t drink one, I know I do!
The key to this drink is substituting homemade pink lemondade for cranberry juice.
Now, you can use pre-made organic pink lemonade, but if you want more control over how sweet or tart you want your lemonade to be, I suggest you make your own. I’ve added the directions to the bottom of this page.
The best part is the lemonade is an important part of this drink, and if you’re using all your own ingredients, you can make the perfect drink as you control all the tastes.
I also encourage you to use fresh lime juice rather than the bottled type. Again, having fresh lime juice and lemonade sweetened to your liking gives you total control and a drink that is bright and fruity and not too sweet, unless you choose it to be.
As far as presentation, you can really use any bar glasses you have on hand, but this looks bet in a chilled martini glass.
How to Make a Pink Cosmo
- 1.5 oz of Citron Vodka
- 1/2 oz of Triple-Sec

Chill a martini glass by adding some ice to the glass or placing the glass in a pile of ice. Do this first and by the time you’re done making your drink the glass will be perfectly chilled.
Fill a shaker halfway with ice and add citron vodka, triple-sec, pink lemonade, and a dash of lime juice.
Empty the martini glass.
Shake all the ingredients well that are in your shaker grab a strainer and strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass.

How to make Pink Lemonade
The following recipe is for 12 servings. But a guide rule of thumb to follow is to use is the following ratio:
Water : Cranberry Juice : Sugar/Styvia : Lemon Juice = 1 cup : 1 tablespoon : 1/3 cup : 1/3 cup
So here’s what you need.
- 2 cups of sweetener, be it sugar or styvia
- 9 cups of water
- 2 cups of fresh organic lemon juice
- 1 cup of organic cranberry juice
In a large glass pitcher, add the ingredients and stir until the sugar/styvia is dissolved. Serve over ice.
