The Bar Is Open.....Again! Bonus Saturday Afternoon Drink Demo

Yes, the bar is open again. I have a bonus Saturday Afternoon Drink Demo to share. This isn't a prohibition era classic cocktail, but it's a good one. Presenting.........the Cosmopolitan!

This recipe will yield four drinks (if served in martini glasses). Start by cutting your lime in half and juicing it. We used an antique glass reamer. See?
    You can use bottled lime juice if you prefer. Now fill your cocktail shaker about 3/4 full with ice. Then add:

  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. triple sec
  • juice of half a lime (approx. 1 oz.)
  • 3 oz. cranberry juice

Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lime peel. You can rim the glasses with sugar if you like. Enjoy responsibly!

Happy Saturday!
