It’s “National Cosmo Day!”

I only caught on to drinking cosmos AFTER Carrie Bradshaw made them popular, so I was late to the party, but I have been drinking them now for about 10 years, and it’s my go to drink whether I go out, or I’m home!  My friends all tease me that I have the “drink pose” down, and, as you can see from the pictures, I love to take pictures of my drink glasses, too.

I’ll share my recipe with you; if you use it, hit me up on Twitter or Instagram and let me know! Tag me @debbiemaz as I’d love to see your pictures and hear your thoughts!  It’s super simple, but always come out perfect!

Here’s the recipe–I prefer Cointreau, but you can use Triple Sec if you want– just don’t do both!

I also like a teaspoon of St Germain, which is optional!

  • 1 1/2 ounce of Vodka
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice 
  • 1/2 ounce of either Triple Sec OR Cointreau 
  • 1/2 ounce Cranberry juice
  • Teaspoon of St Germain (Optional)
  • Orange twist for garnish

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until chilled, and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with an orange twist!  It’s easy and delicious! Cheers!
