THE PERFECT DRINK FOR THE HOLIDAYS (or anytime):
The Cosmopolitan Martini.
It’s colorful. It’s festive. It has just the right amount of alcohol (not too much). And it’s sophisticated.
It’s popular. Easy to order. Not that hard to make. Just take:
1½ oz Vodka
2½ oz Cranberry Juice
1 oz Cointreau
½ oz Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice
Either shake lightly with cracked ice or stir with ice cubes
Strain into a martini glass
Garnish with a lime wheel
Raise your glasses, but before you toast the holidays, remember those extraordinary ladies in “Sex And The City” who helped add to its popularity. Give them their due, and then toast the holidays.
You know, a Cosmopolitan is great. But really – it’s all about the shoes.
