Cosmopolitan Slushy

Take your traditional cosmo to the next level with this icy, ruby-red cocktail recipe.

Real Simple JUNE 2000

  • Yield: Makes 6 servings


  • 10 ounce (1 1/4 cups) citrus-flavored vodka
  • 1/2 cup Rose's lime juice
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 4 ice cube trays


Combine vodka, lime juice, and cranberry juice in a pitcher with 2 cups water and stir to blend. Divide between ice cube trays and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight (the drink cubes will freeze only partially). Just before serving, empty trays into a large bowl and using a fork, break up cubes to loosen ice crystals (the ice will be slushlike). Spoon slush into tall stemmed glasses and serve immediately.
