Happy Hour Monday: Carrie's Classic Cosmo
FROM THE FIRST SEX AND THE CITY MOVIE: Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte are sitting at a restaurant with martini glasses of cosmopolitans in hand.
Miranda: “Why did we ever stop drinking these?”
“Because everyone else started.”
“Well, that one’s an oldie but goodie.”
The Sex and the City TV series popularized the cosmopolitan among women and gay men. While last Friday we gave you a new Mr. Big beverage (courtesy of SKYY Vodka), we thought we'd offer the original SitC cocktail today. Because the truth is that a cosmo is like these ladies: a delicious classic.
•1 oz SKYY vodka
•1/2 oz triple sec
•1/2 oz fresh lime juice
•1/2 oz cranberry juice
1. Combine SKYY vodka, triple sec, lime and cranberry juices in a cocktail shaker with ice.
3. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a twist.
