Get a little flirtatious with this pineapple flavored rendition of a sparkling Cosmopolitan. The Flirtini is a great Champagne cocktail for romantic summer evenings or Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, or any other occasion that you want to celebrate.

Mix this up just before serving so that the Champagne doesn't lose its bubbles. It may also be best to mix up two or more Flirtinis at a time so you don't waste an open bottle of wine on a single drink.

  • Cointreau is commonly used in the flirtini, but feel free to use your favorite premium triple sec instead. A top-shelf orange curaçao works well, too.

How Strong Is the Flirtini?

It's wise to remember that Cointreau is an 80-proof liqueur and if we pair that with an 80-proof vodka, the Flirtini is not as innocent as it looks. While that is true, this is no Martini and in that respect, it's a gentle cocktail with an alcohol content of about 17 percent ABV (34 proof).
