The Ward 8 is a cocktail with a long history…
Cosmopolitans are traditionally made with cranberry juice, but that doesn’t mean that cranberry juice is the only way to make a cosmo. Cherry juice gives the cocktail that same striking red color and blends beautifully with a little fresh lime juice and triple sec. For a cosmo that has even more cherry flavor, you could try using a high quality cherry vodka, like Grey Goose Cherry Noir along with the cherry juice.
2 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1/2 oz. Cherry Juice
1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Pour ingredients into an ice filled shaker. Shake until cold and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
