I do feel just a little bit like Sandra Lee ringing out “It’s Cocktail Time!” as I write this post! But I do get asked for this recipe quite a bit so I thought I’d share my version of the cosmo. It’s the signature drink for Oscar party and required accessory for viewing any Sex in the City episode.
You just need a few basic ingredients to whip up this dangerous cocktail
1/2 C Absolut Citron
1/2 C Triple Sec
1 C Cranberry Juice Cocktail
Juice of 1 Lime
Limes and Sugar for Garnish
Combine all ingredients and mix to create three cosmos. This recipe does not double well – you’ll need to add more alcohol and more lime if you’re making a pitcher of cosmos.
To garnish simply run a lime wedge around the top rim of the glass and dip in sugar. Slice a wedge of lime or a wheel to top off your masterpiece. With this much cranberry, you’ll actually get to enjoy the cocktail without feeling like you’re drinking a shot, but let me tell you – these guys will sneak up on you!
