Shameless plug of the day for Midsummer: we got a great review.
So click on that sucker and if it sounds like a good show, get a ticket here.
Thou wilt have a smashing time if thou goeth.

Now on to the last of the experimental Cosmos. It stood out for it’s non-partisan blend of vodka, Cointreau and cranberry. Did this provide a perfect balance? Almost. Not quite.

I have examined this recipe, sipped, scribbled and contemplated all data from this and the previous four Cosmo recipes to create an Ellen Original. The Cosmo with the Edge. Because I’m edgy. Yah. T’will be unveiled tomorrow.

In the meantime, consider this:

Cosmopolitan #3 from the Drink Pro Lite App
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. cranberry juice cocktail(sweeter than juice!)
1/2 oz. Lime juice
Lime wedge
Shake all but the wedge and strain. Garnish with wedge.
ANALYSIS
Color: just a hair less pink than the pinkest. Barbie’s kid sister
Refreshing factor: Quite, but bracing
Sweetness: moderate
Balance: a bit strong of an alcohol finish
Cran-factor: decent
Rating: A-
Really quite decent. But I missed that citron vodka.
