I had to cut many explanations out, cause of a 1000 letter max. I hope all the parenthesis errors don't bother your eyes or confuse you. If you go by my recipe verbatim, you'll have the cosmo of your dreams. Again, 1.5 - 2 ounces grey goose citron vodka, half ounce of Cointreau, half ounce of fresh squeeze lime juice, half ounce(no more or less of cranberry juice(ocean spray brand is best, not unsweetened or organic. I have explanations and like to go into great detail why, however I only have so much room. Please measure all ingredients to make drinks perfectly balanced and consistent! Cosmos are NOT RED, cosmos are bright faint pink! Always serve in a chilled martini glass. You may switch the lime garnish for orange twist(make a long curly twist from orange peel. Enjoy- ChrisTheBartender

It would be a good idea to specify what type of cranberry juice to use. I used "real" cranberry juice, which, I learned made an awful cosmo, at great expense. Looks like I should have used something called "cranberry juice cocktail" or whatever. Not sure what to do with this batch of foul tasting stuff. (Yes, I did add a lot of sugar, but no visible improvement. Yes, I did add more alcohol, still no improvement. Maybe I can make something with fizzy water and this odd mixture.
