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!
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. cointreau or triple sec
3/4 oz. cranberry juice
1/4 oz. fresh lime juice
Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.
A true Aquarius and creative spirit at heart, interior design, fashion, lifestyle, and music are my influences. My life revolves around my 2 passions: Business and Art. I'm a little preppy and a little bohemian, laced with a touch of glamour. I love a cup of French pressed coffee, art and design books, travels along the Mediterranean, bubbly champagne, fiercely creative people and those with good energy, intense conversations, daydreaming, and good old-fashioned love in every form it manifests itself. Step inside and stay awhile...
