“The rumor is that Meghan is an American spitfire ... so a cocktail that is stunningly beautiful, a bit tart, yet finishes sweet, certainly makes this cocktail fitting for the soon-to-be-princess," Daniel Beres, Beverage Director at Vermuteria 600 at Hotel Madrid in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, tells TODAY Food. This spin on the traditional Cosmopolitan is made with Absolut Elyx Vodka, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, Torres Spanish Orange Liqueur, cranberry juice, Bittercube Jamaican #1 Bitters and fresh organic cranberries.
