Vodka brands are already in high gear trying to design the ultimate New Years cocktail to ring in 2012. Hard Rock Vodka just sent over this twist on the classic cosmopolitan to which they’re calling the Hard Rock Vodka’s Rockin’ Cranberry Cosmo. The ingredient I found unique is the use of a packet of Equal, we got sugar alternative fans out there? Perhaps this is part of the low calorie cocktail trend?
Rockin’ Cranberry Cosmo
- 2 oz. of Hard Rock Vodka
- 1 oz. of Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
- 1 oz. of lime juice
- 1 packet of Equal
- 1 oz. of cranberry juice
Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and serve in a chilled martini glass, garnished with a lime wedge.
And, since I have folks that pay attention to vodka brands, Hard Rock Vodka is a six-times distilled grain-based vodka.
