How to Make The Classic Cosmopolitan

2 ounces vodka
1 ounce Triple Sec
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce cranberry juice
Orange peel to decorate, if desired.

Shake all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled glass and enjoy.

I used a new cranberry juice from "Synergy" with Kombucha in it, the results, a bright pink. It almost looks like pink lemonade, doesn't it? :)
