Sheer Cosmopolitan

I created this cocktail a few years ago, and it was one of my first originals. It has the berry and citrus flavors of a traditional cosmopolitan with a sleek, sheer look.

Sheer Cosmopolitan

2 oz cranberry vodka
1 oz triple sec
½ oz fresh-squeezed lime juice, strained

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with lime and a sugared rim. For a top shelf version, use a premium orange liqueur, such as Cointreau (Grand Marnier is not so sheer).
