"During these stressful times, it’s really important to keep traditions alive," said Food Network star Ina Garten (aka Barefoot Contessa) in her viral giant cocktail video. "My favorite tradition is the cocktail hour. I’m gonna make you my favorite Cosmopolitan and you probably have all the ingredients right in your house."

You’ll need:


  • 2 cups good vodka
  • 1 cup Cointreau, triple sec or any type of orange liqueur
  • 1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Pour the vodka into the pitcher.
  2. Add the Cointreau.
  3. Pour in the cranberry juice cocktail.
  4. Fill a large cocktail shaker half full with ice.
  5. Pour the prepared cocktail into the shaker.
  6. Shake it for 30 seconds.
  7. Pour it into a giant martini glass or several regular-sized martini glasses. Drink up!

“Stay safe, have a very good time and don’t forget the cocktails!” 

Cheers, Ina!
