Where did you get your cosmo recipe??

Never, ever use lime juice in a cosmos. It will taste awful! The other ingredients are fine. Cosmo should be a pinkish color, not bright red. If it's red then you've added too much cranberry juice.

Are you retarded? Never use lime juice?!?! The correct recipe (as in, the one that was used to popularize the drink) was as follows
1.5 oz Absolut Citron
.5 oz Cointreau
.25 oz fresh squeezed lime
.5 oz cranberry juice

The original that popularized the drink was from Dale DeGroff, who served this drink to Madonna at the famous Rainbow Room in NYC. While he didn't invent the drink, he is the reason it is popular, and the one I listed is the recipe he used.
