A Cosmo. There is nothing more stereo typically girly than this cocktail- yet there are times in every woman’s life where acquiring one of these magically pink drinks is a must in that moment. Perhaps it is the color, or how every woman’s favorite sitcom immortalized it as the perfect vehicle to turn your girls night out into a fabulous event.
For me personally, on the first day of a new year. I cannot help but feel a bit nervous of the unknown 2015 will bring with its blank pages. While sitting here and reflecting, I found myself longing for an old friend, a taste of familiarity. A Cosmo was just the ticket, as it hit my lips so did a flood of memories.
The Perfect Cosmo
3 ounces of High Quality Vodka ( I used Breckenridge)
1 1/2 ounces of Triple Sec
1 1/2 ounces of Cranberry Juice
1 ounce of Fresh Lime Juice
Combine ice, Vodka, Triple Sec, Cranberry Juice, and Lime Juice into a mixer – shake for approximately 20 seconds. Garnish with a lime peel if desired.
