At a recent blind tasting of Cosmopolitans, Sarah Morrisey’s version took first place. The combination of 1 ½ ounces of Stolichnaya lemon vodka, 1 ounce Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail, ¾ ounce Cointreau, and ½ ounce lime juice, finished off with an orange twist (discarded) and a lime wedge was a standout.
