Mom wanted to serve Cosmopolitans with Christmas Eve dinner. Molly had made them when they’d done a girl’s party earlier in the year, and everyone involved thought they were excellent. While she wasn’t able to provide us with an exact recipe, experimentation provided the results below.



Mix vodka, orange liquor, and lime juice. Poor into the bottom of a wine glass. Add ice. Fill the wine glass the rest of the way with sparkling pear juice. Mix well and enjoy.


You can substitute sparkling cranberry, strawberry, apple, etc. juice in place of the pear if you want too. However, the combination of sweet pear and tart lime ends up being both refreshing and lip-smacking good.
