My sister is here today to share us with a fun new cocktail recipe! Enjoy!
About eight months ago, overwhelmed with finalizing wedding plans, buying an old home to fix up, and life in general, I decided I wasn’t seeing my friends enough. Determined to have more face time, I instigated Wine Wednesday. Each Wednesday we get together, have a few cocktails and just hang out, no boys allowed. This past week, I wanted to mix it up and try something fun! So I made Cosmos.
My prep for the cosmo’s started Tuesday evening. I measured out the cranberry and lime juice, poured them into each class, and then put them in the freezer at an angle.
Then on Wednesday, when my girls came over all I had to do was mix the vodka and Cointreau and throw in a lime slice.
Now. If I were to do this again, here is what I would do differently. First. When freezing the cranberry juice, I would only freeze HALF the recommended amount. Second. When mixing the vodka and Cointreau, I would then mix the other half of cranberry juice. In order to keep it visually appealing, I would use red cranberry juice for what is frozen and white cranberry juice for the “top off”.That way it won’t be all vodka when you take that first sip!
