I hope you are enjoying the summer as much as I do.
Lots of reading and writing.
It’s the perfect weather for ice-cold cocktails.
As I promised in the latest newsletter, here is the recipe for my Cosmopolitan (very inspired by Sex And The City).
A classic cosmo is very easy to make and the result is really tasty 🙂
This is how I do it (one person):
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1 oz cranberry juice
- ¾ oz fresh lime juice (= large lime)
- 1 oz Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
- Lime or orange twist (for serving)
Mix Vodka, Cointreau, cranberry juice and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill up the shaker with ice and shake it thoroughly until you can feel it’s getting cold. It should be less than a minute.
Strain the drink into your favorite martini glass and you’re done.
For an additional touch of class, garnish with lime or orange twist.
Today I finally got to try my new cocktail shaker. If you don’t have one, then you might want to have a look at THIS ONE. It comes with a built in strainer, a double jigger, a mixing spoon (+ several drink recipes) and it works like a charm (also for Margarita’s ;)).
Much love ♥
