Cosmo Vampyre

Just because vampires may engage in questionable activities when the sun sets it doesn’t mean that they can’t enjoy a sophisticated cocktail like the rest of us. Vampyre Vodka tastes just like regular vodka but it looks like fresh blood. (It’s actually quite eerie.) Just be sure to carry a cocktail napkin with you on Halloween night as you sip your drink around others. The slightest hint of red in the corners of your mouth could send waves of shock and terror through those around you.

Cosmopolitan Vampyre
1.5 ounces Vampyre Red Vodka
2 ounces Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice
½ ounce Cointreau
½ ounce lime juice
4-5 cranberry ice cubes

Step 1: Make the cranberry ice cubes 2-3 hours ahead of time. Once frozen, add them to a lowball, highball, or goblet.
Step 2: Combine the Vampyre vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, and Cointreau in a shaker with ice. Shake the mixture then strain it into your glass with cranberry ice cubes.
Step 3: Garnish the drink with lime wheels or wedges.
