Thirsty Thursdays: Make Mine a Cosmo

Without Sex in the City, the Cosmopolitan would not be the wildly popular cocktail it is today. Created in the early 80s, the drink became well known because Carrie frequently ordered the rosy-hued concoction. I used to order a "Sky Cosmo" in the late 90s while in college, when I visited my older sister in San Francisco, as it was all the rage in the city. Today, I still enjoy a stiff one on nights out with the girls. It's pink, it's pretty, it's fun, it's giggly, and it gets the job done!
Ingredients
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. cointreau or triple sec
3/4 oz. cranberry juice
1/4 oz. fresh lime juice

Directions

Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.
