Would use 1/2 oz of pure cranberry juice (like from Lakewood), for bitterness and red color, NOT the cranberry juice COCKTAIL from Ocean Spray et al. (Cranberry juice cocktail is mostly apple juice.)

The Cosmo was balanced around cranberry cocktail. I think pure cranberry juice is a good addition (and an excellent ingredient in its own right), but a vodka daisy bittered with cranberry is a different drink.
