Emperor Norton Cosmopolitans

I accidentally developed a recipe for grey Cosmopolitans, which I’ve named in honor of my grey cat, Norton, and San Francisco (home of the original Cosmopolitan cocktail)’s folk hero (see more on him here): 

Shake over ice:

  • One part fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • Four parts tangerine-zest-infused vodka (make this yourself by dumping a bunch of tangerine zest in a bottle of vodka and letting it rest for a few weeks)
  • Half a part unsweetened cranberry juice concentrate
  • One part blue curacao (instead of the traditional triple sec)

Strain into martini glass. Sugared rim optional. Why gild the lily?
