Like the rest of the world, I fell in love with Cosmos while watching Sex and the City. When I was home from college on breaks, my mom and I would mix up some cosmos and sip them while watching SATC. Good times. Since then, they've remained one of my favorite drinks and I can't believe I haven't written about them before now.
Cosmopolitan 2 oz. cranberry juice 1 oz. vodka 1/2 oz. Cointreau (or triple sec) Shake ingredients vigorously with ice and pour into a martini glass. Lime is the classic garnish, but I prefer it garnished with a maraschino cherry or drunken gummy bears.
