Ina Garten's Big Batch Cosmopolitans Contain A Super Easy Ratio
Ina Garten is the queen of batch cocktails, and she has a great recipe for Cosmopolitans in mass quantities that doesn't require any crazy ingredients.
The ratio for Garten's batch Cosmo is 2 cups of good vodka, 1 cup of Cointreau (or any orange liqueur), 1 cup of cranberry juice cocktail, and ½ cup of fresh-squeezed lime juice.
Garten's ratio gives you a deliciously balanced cocktail and is highly customizable. To make it a Metropolitan, you can simply substitute black currant vodka for straight vodka.
Altering the color of your batch cocktail is simple using the ratio. Make them blue by replacing the red cranberry juice cocktail for white and Cointreau for the blue Curaçao.
Or, if you want to play with the flavor rather than the color, you could substitute watermelon juice for cranberry juice for a summery Cosmopolitan twist.
