Classic Cosmo

A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous. Well so said Coco Chanel. The definition of a classy cocktail is a cosmo. A more sophisticated version of a vodka cranberry. All these years later the Sex and the City effect is still seen in bars across the world. If it was good enough for Carrrie, you bet it’s good enough for me.

Please excuse the changing of the glasses, pre and post cosmo making. I don’t quite have all the correct glassware for this new found hobby of mine. I have been enjoying the process of making a drink and switching off after the week. As opposed to the auto-pilot of pouring some wine.

This recipe is yet another, add ice to shaker, add ingredients, shake, pour.

  • 2 shots of vodka
  • 1 shot of cointreau
  • 1.5 shots of cranberry juice
  • 1 shot of sugar syrup
  • 1/2 lime juice
  • Orange to garnish

How cute is this Stand Tall & Be Fabulous sign? Yet another Next purchase, but fits the flamingo and gold theme in the bar area.

A very pretty in pink drink. The right amount of tart and tangy! Once you have bought the spirits, buying in some cranberry and fresh fruit isn’t too expensive.
