Carrie and co. would approve

If you’re gonna go for a Cosmo the Sex and The City crew would be proud of, this baby’s got your name all over it. However, before mixing, pouring, kicking back and gabbing up a storm with your respective Social Gals and/or Social Gents, a few notes are in order … to enhance the experience. 😉

FIRST, don’t be skimping on the vodka; embrace the good stuff, especially because the V is such a powerful driver of the mix. On the Diary side, we’re partial to solid brands like Belvedere, Grey Goose and homegrown Pur, flavoured or not, deferring to individual palates.

SECOND, don’t be afraid to personalize and own the blend, be it with a unique garnish, i.e., a sexy floral or an edgy ingredient you love, like a spray of mint. Experimenting is good; it brings out your inner mixologist and adds interest to the bev.


(serves one)

2 ounces (1/4 cup) vodka.
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) triple sec.

How to
