Mandarin Metropolitan

May 19, 2011 (Day 52) — Mandarin Metropolitan

The Metropolitan cocktail is a lot like a Cosmopolitan. It can easily be pigeon-holed as a ladies drink, but can actually be tasty enough for guys if it’s mixed properly. The addition of the Orange Cream vodka can push this drink over the edge into syrup if you’re not careful.

Mandarin Metropolitan

  • 1.5 oz Burnett’s Orange Cream Vodka
  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice

Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake well and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

You’ll have to like orange to like this. It has a distinct orange sorbet flavor. Again, you’ll want to play with proportions to your taste, to make it more or less sweet.
