|A perfect late afternoon in the garden.|
In due time, I learned to make a Cosmo that I liked just about the best of any that have tried, and my "layered" Cosmopolitan has become one of the standards in my cocktail repertoire. My cocktail uses POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice, and when I am making the classic version of my Cosmo, I use POM blended with cranberry juice.
Depending on the season and what I or my guests are in the mood for, I will also use Absolut vodka flavored with peach or mango, topped off with one of the other variations of POM Wonderful such as POM Cherry. The POM Wonderful in my recipe cannot be substituted with other brands of juice. Regular juice does not contain enough pigment to create the lovely layering effect that makes this cocktail such a show-stopper to serve to your guests.
