The Cosmo

image

Cosmos are not old, washed up and out of date.  Hell no! It’s a classic cocktail- sexy and fun, the perfect drink for a girls’ night out or in! That’s why I have chosen it as the ideal cocktail to go with: Cocktails and Canvases.

(In it, I talk about how essential our girlfriends are during our hectic lives, as moms.)

So, the next time you get together with the girls, why not shake up some Cosmos and make a toast to “The Whirlwind Years” and to being there for each other throughout.

Here is how to make a Cosmo:

Ingredients:

Makes 1

Vodka – 2 oz.

Countreau -a splash

Cranberry Juice- 1 oz.

1/4 of a lime- squeezed

Method:

1. Put some ice in a metal or glass shaker.

2. Put all of the ingredients into the shaker and shake, shake, shake. The more you shake it the colder and icier and tastier it will be.

3. Strain it into a martini glass.

4. Garnish with a twist of lime (in the shape of a little whirlwind, if you’re fancy like that- haha)

On lazy summer days, the girls and I would just chill out up on rooftops, drinking beer. We’d talk about guys, sex, and the meaning of life. We’d confide in each other about the trials and tribulations of our own, self-absorbed, twenty-something lives.

We had some serious time on our hands….
