For those wanting a trendy vodka martini cocktail, Cosmopolitans are a favorite. When vodka makers elbowed their way into the gin-inspired martini world, it wasn’t a bad thing (although some purists would argue that). And then came the Cosmo, a vodka martini with fruit flavors. For a sophisticated cocktail party, try this one:

    2 oz. Tito’s Handmade Vodka
    1 oz. Orange Liqueur
    2 oz. Cranberry
    Splash of Blood Orange Italian Soda
    Twist of lemon

Combine first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker until well chilled. Strain into a martini glass top with splash of Blood Orange Italian Soda and garnish with twist of lemon.
