Aah...the Cosmopolitan. As any fan of "Sex and the City" knows, the cocktail hour just isn't complete without one.

The Cosmo is basically a light, fruity martini. It's very refreshing, making it ideal for summer cocktail parties or casual get-togethers.

There are tons of variations of this Comopolitan cocktail recipe floating around. Some people like more or less cranberry juice, some like it with flavored or plain vodka, some like fresh or bottled lime juice. It's a matter of personal preference, but this one's my favorite version.

Party tip

For a party, make a pitcher of Cosmopolitans. Combine all ingredients in a pitcher, stir well and set over a large bowl of ice to keep chilled.

This will free you from mixing individual drinks and allow guests to serve themselves easily.

Now you can enjoy the party too!

see it for yourself

If you're anything like me, it's much easier to learn a new skill by seeing it done rather than reading about it.

So sit back, relax and watch Allen Katz, from Martha Stewart radio, show you how it's done...

Allen doesn't use the exact recipe I have listed above, but you'll get the idea by watching how he does it.
