Classic Cosmopolitan

Add all the ingredients to your cocktail shaker together with a large handful of ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.

Double strain into the two chilled glasses.

Cut a small piece of orange zest. Hold over the glass with a match or lighter in your other hand.

Bend the orange peel to release a fine spray of bitter oils a short distance from the flame and watch them catch alight. Drop the peel into your glass and enjoy.
