With many places offering stylized versions of the Cosmopolitan, I'd like to have the recipe for the "classic" drink, along with any special variations that you favor. Thanks.

Hi Michael,

The recipe from the Rainbow Room menu was reprinted so often that it became the standard…it didn’t hurt that it tasted great either. The flaming of the orange oil over the top of the drink (our trademark at Rainbow) added a unique flavor note that the drink, even made the same way lacked without.


1 1/2 oz. Citron Vodka

1/2 oz. Cointreau

1/4 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

1 oz. Cranberry Juice

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
