Constantine’s Cosmo: A Cosmo Riff

Constantine's Cosmo riff

A Cosmo with tang, texture, and floral notes.

This Cosmo riff by Keith Larry, head bartender of Brooklyn’s Little Rascal, swaps out the cranberry with a housemade raspberry-lychee purée for a bit of tang and texture and the Cointreau for St-Germain, rounding out the flavors with floral notes.


  • 1 3/4 oz. vodka (Little Rascal uses Haku)
  • 3/4 oz. elderflower liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. raspberry-lychee purée
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Tools:shaker, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:dehydrated lemon wheel, mint


Add all of the ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into a coupe, then garnish.

Raspberry-Lychee PuréeAdd 2 parts fresh raspberries, 1 part lychee, and 1 part granulated sugar to a blender. Blend until smooth. Will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.
