DDG's Blood Orange Cosmopolitan recipe

I grew up watching Sex & the City with my mum and sisters (and maybe not entirely understanding all the references but being enthralled nonetheless) so there's a special place in my heart for the classic Cosmopolitan cocktail. While I still enjoy watching the show — and acknowledging that some of the things they wear are terrible and definitely did not age well — I got over drinking cosmos after a couple of bad cranberry juice experiences in my youth. This twist on the classic cosmo gives it a slightly fizzy blood orange flavour that takes the tartness out of the cranberry juice and makes it super smooth going down.
