Cosmopolitan Anyone?

I got this recipe from a friend of mine and tried them last night for girls night - we loved them (hiccup) -

Cosmopolitan

1 shot vodka
1 shot cranberry juice
1/2 shot grand marnier
1/2 shot roses lime juice

Combine, shake in shaker with ice, strain into glass - enjoy!
I made a pitcher of these ahead of time and then poured into the shaker. Actually, we drank two pitchers!

Try using a lemon vodka to make these. It adds a little something extra,

not that they need anything extra.

It's 10am, but yes, I'd like one. :D
I'd love to a part of your girls night! That would be so fun! It's great that you take time for yourself. I wish I could go play with a group of friends like that. We've been living here for 3 years but I don't get a whole lot of interaction with other adults. We really like our neighbors though, they are great!

Citron is pretty good but I prefer that for something like a kamikaze which has more of a bite.

For this drink, try ordering it with Absolut Mandarin. Really good.

Last time I had a few while out with the girls I had a rather spectacular reaction in the bathroom when I got home.

I like them myself, but avoid them because they DO go down a little too easy!
