As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to start planning those festive gatherings, parties, and get-togethers. While traditional cocktails are always a hit, why not add a touch of winter wonder to your celebrations with a Winter White Cosmo?
This delightful twist on the classic Cosmopolitan is not only visually appealing but also delicious. This unique-tasting Winter White Cosmo is made with Vodka and Elderflower Liqueur. The Elderflower liqueur gives the martini a hint of pear and passionfruit flavors. And the white cranberry juice contributes a mellow fruitiness without the traditional tartness of red cranberries.
The Winter White Cosmo is the epitome of holiday elegance. Its pale hue and crisp, clean taste make it a delightful addition to your winter cocktail repertoire.

The Winter White Cosmo Ingredients: A Seasonal Sensation
- St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
- Non-alcoholic Triple Sec Syrup
- White Cranberry Juice
With all of the vodkas on the market, I use Stoli, Absolut, Ketel One, or Grey Goose to make a martini. For example, a Dirty Martini has hardly any mixer, so I’ll use Grey Goose, a more expensive but smoother Vodka. Otherwise, the Stoli, Absolut, or Ketel One are perfect for a Winter White Cosmo.

You can’t mix a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!
And don’t forget the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher-safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass, great for stacking in the freezer, and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant. Still, finding a safe spot to lay it down in the freezer is harder.
How to make a Winter White Cosmo
To make a Winter White Cosmo pour the Vodka, St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, triple-sec syrup, and white cranberry juice into a shaker half full of ice and let the martini sit for a minute. Shake well for 15 seconds and pour the strained contents into a chilled martini glass.
Optional: If desired, garnish your Winter White Cosmo with a few fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary for a festive touch.
One of the most charming features of the Winter White Cosmo is its elegant appearance. The pale frosted appearance of this cocktail makes it a natural fit for holiday-themed parties. The optional garnish of fresh cranberries adds a touch of festive red.
The Winter White Cosmo is the perfect winter wonderland-inspired cocktail for holiday parties. Its elegant appearance, and delightful flavor profile makes it a fantastic addition to your seasonal drink menu. So, raise your glass, toast to the season’s joys, and enjoy the crisp, refreshing taste of the Winter White Cosmo with your friends and loved ones. Cheers to a wonderful and unforgettable holiday season!
