I was first introduced to a French Cosmo with Absolut Mandarin at a restaraunt/bar in Asheville, North Carolina. Don't remember the name of the place but it was run by a Black lady who could sing just like Billie Holiday. Food there was Gourman!
- 1 ounce vodka (Absolut Mandarin-a must!)
- 1⁄2 ounce Grand Marnier
- 1⁄2 ounce prepared sweet-and-sour mix
- 1⁄2 ounce cranberry juice
- 1⁄4 ounce lime juice
- 1 drop grenadine
For the Sweet and Sour Mix
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup water
- Put the first 5 ingredients, excluding Grenadine, into a shaker, then shake well and strain into a well chilled martini glass.
