Cosmania Day Two

This is my(and the Kids in the Hall’s) disclaimer to my advice to drink pink:
Don’t be a Girl Drink Drunk.

As long as you steer clear of coconuts you should be ok.
Let’s talk about this Cosmo.

This recipe required an extra purchase: citron vodka.
Hot diggity-dog that was worth it.

If I were truly a hip, bespoke, dare-I-say mixologist (just did), I’d make my own flavored vodkas. But I am not that cool. I say hot diggity-dog, not even ironically, and thus I buy my flavored vodka.

And I say thus. Crap. But I do make my own vanilla extract: look here for that!

And getting Martha makes me at least a little bit of a bad-ass. There I feel better, I’ll drink to that!

Original Cosmopolitan from The Bar Book by Mittie Hellmich
1 1/2 oz. citron vodka
1 1/2 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. fresh lime juice
a couple of dashes of cranberry juice cocktail(not just juice-being a cocktail makes it sweeter)
lemon twist
Shake all but lemon twist with ice. Strain and garnish with twist.
ANALYSIS
Color-like new-fallen cotton candy
Refreshing factor-very
Sweetness-hardly, a touch at the end
Balance-somewhat strong alcohol
Cranberry factor-minimal
Rating A

What a difference a high proportion of fresh lime juice and the citron vodka make.
