Celebrate the Sunshine With This Cold Snap Cucumber Cosmo Recipe

Celebrate National Cosmopolitan Day on May 7 with this chilly — and refreshing — cocktail

The refreshing cocktail was made for easy living and afternoons outdoors in the Hudson Valley.

Craving a cosmo? Whether for National Cosmopolitan Day (May 7, in case you’re wondering) or a low-key Friday at home, the iconic drink is timeless – and versatile, too. This handcrafted Cold Snap Cucumber Cosmo — which comes in a rocks glass made entirely of ice, courtesy of Bonefish Grill — is a twist on the restaurant’s signature Cold Snap Cosmo that would please even the fussiest Carrie Bradshaws of the world.

Bonefish Grill is keeping its exact formula a secret, but our resident bartender suggests a way to recreate the cocktail at home.

Cold Snap Cucumber Cosmo (HV Mag version)


1½ oz Reyka vodka* (we think the restaurant infused their vodka with cucumber; do to this at home, simply store cucumbers in your alcohol in the fridge for a few days)
1 oz Solerno Blood Orange liqueur*
½ oz lime juice
½ oz triple sec
English cucumbers*

Garnish with fresh cucumber slices.
