Cheers with the Cosmonaut Cocktail!

From 3-Ingredient Cocktails, Sasha Petraske’s summer libation couldn’t be easier to make.

Cosmonaut Cocktail Recipe

Cosmonaut by Sasha Petraske

Another succinct Sasha Petraske creation, this is his sly retort to the popularity of the Cosmopolitan, as the name coyly indicates. Indeed, the drink, piquant and slightly fruity, fills much the same purpose, tastewise, as that ubiquitous cocktail—only more so. 

  • 2 ounces gin 
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice 
  • 1 bar spoon raspberry preserves 
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe.
