1 c. sugar

1 c. h2o

heat 3 – 6 minutes; do not boil

Now you’ll have simple syrup on hand … step one in making the very best Cosmopolitan Martini your lips will ever touch.  This perfectly proportioned pale pink concoction will win your heart and you won’t even be tempted to look twice at the numerous imposters – even if they happen to be poured in fabulous stems. 

Here’s the recipe.  It makes one, so go ahead and double it!

2 oz. citrus vodka

1 oz. Cointreau

1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 oz. simple syrup

1 oz. cranberry juice
