Anyone know how to make cosmopolitans in a pitcher?

Asked by crazyandbeautiful (551points) March 20th, 2010

Instead of one serving I want to make 4–6 servings of the original cosmopolitan in a pitcher for a party I am having. I usually make them for each person. But that takes up alot of time. Whats a quick and easy way to make them fast? Thanks alot.

This is my recipe for Cosmos for a crowd.

Cosmopolitans for a Crowd

18 -24 oz. fluid ounces lemon vodka
12 fluid ounces Cointreau
12 fluid ounce cranberry juice
¾ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
¾ c simple syrup

Combine vodka, Cointreau, cranberry and lime juices. Stir well to combine and chill. Shake each drink with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Twist orange zest over each drink and serve. Recipe can be easily multiplied.

I’ve made this recipe for a low carb crowd using water mixed with Splenda instead of simple syrup made with sugar. Make a splenda slurry using the amount of water = the simple syrup called for in the recipe and add splenda to taste (use less than you think you will need). It works well and either way—a large batch can be made in advance and chilled. Makes for easy entertaining.

not my work. I stole it from this site.

Why can’t you take your “one serving” and multiply each part by say 6 or so?

After you mix it up in the pitcher, put it in the freezer for a couple of hours. The non alcohol ingredients will freeze and make it a little slushy. Stir it up to break up the slush and pour it. Ice cold and outstanding.
