A Seven Jars Special Recipe

So there is some credibility to the argument that the Cosmopolitan cannot be considered a “classic” cocktail, certainly not in a list of drinks that were popular in a prohibition era. However, we are including it in this list simply because of the variation! The Strawberry Cosmopolitan utilizes a strawberry shrub, which was very popular during prohibition (and in fact long before that due to lack of adequate refrigeration). SO, even though the Cosmopolitan didn’t really come about until sometime in the 1980’s, when made with Seven Jars Vodka it is so good, and so popular among the ladies that we felt it deserved a place in this collection.

Instructions
  1. In a stainless shaker, combine the the lime juice, Contreau, Seven Jars Vodka. Add a dash of Cranberry Juice; fill with ice. Shake thoroughly, chilling the mixture. Pour through a strainer into a Martini glass. Take a peel of lemon rind and while squeezing over the top of the cocktail, lightly singe the orange peel. Properly done, this produces a flash of flame (be careful not to burn yourself!) that will impress your friends and certify you in their minds as a highly skilled mixologist! For the less daring, you can substitute a lime wheel for the lemon peel!
