How do you make a Cosmopolitan Martini?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Bartending interview

Advice
The cosmo is a favorite drink, so you had better know the necessary ingredients, which are vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and a splash of lime.

If you have a unique way of making a killer cosmo, explain those subtle differences to your interviewer.

Basic answer example
"I am a traditionalist, so I do prefer making Cosmopolitan Martinis in its original state with vodka, triple sec, cran, and lime. I may ask my customer if they prefer their cosmo on the sweet or sourer side. Also, I skip the sugar and garnish with just a twist of lime."
Entry Level answer example
"From my understanding, a Cosmopolitan Martini is made with vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and lime juice. Sometimes the glass is rimmed with sugar, and it's usually served with a lime twist."
Experienced answer example
"The cosmo was made famous by my favorite show, Sex and the City! Who could forget how to make one? I can make a cosmo the traditional way with vodka, Cointreau, cranberry, and lime juice. Also, I have a little fun and add fresh cranberries and a dash of sugar for my customers who aren't cosmo purists."
