Cosmania Day Three

20 Jun

No entertaining videos for you today, but if you missed yesterday’s Girl Drink Drunk bit from Kids in the Hall, or Monday’s trailer for my play, well then, click those links and get giggling.
No nevermind, please don’t giggle.
I don’t like the word giggle. No that’s not right. The word is fine, but I would hate my laugh to be described as “giggling”, it just seems so…obnoxious. Like laughing in a bratty way.
C’est tout.
Cranberry-esque Cosmopolitan from The Bar Book by Mittie Hellmich
2 oz. citron vodka
3/4 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. cranberry juice cocktail(I reiterate that I used the cocktail, t’would probably be less sweet without)
1 oz. fresh lime juice
Lemon twist
Shake all but lemon twist with ice, garnish with lemon twist.
Refreshing factor-not terribly
Sweetness-syrup-y finish
Balance-despite having more vodka, not terribly alcohol-y
Cran-factor- moderate
Rating B+

Probably the larger proportion of cranberry juice cocktail made it sweeter. Or perhaps having less Cointreau makes it less sweet since it lacks the bitter orange bite? I don’t know. I don’t think I’ve actually tasted it straight up. Hmm. Things to do.

    Wow! I’ve actually never had a cosmo before 😦 Hmm… must convince parents to buy vodka or sneak it into the house without them noticing. Gee life was so much easier before moving in back with the parents and being having to keep up my “good girl” reputation. Lol!

      Uh oh! I’m not encouraging underaged drinking am I?;)

      If you do make one of these yourself wait for the recipe I devised which will roll out on Saturday, it’s the best of the bunch…
