Drinks Winter White Cosmo
IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME! STOP, SHKOFF, REWIND! Look, there’s absolutely no reason to be a scrooge today. Not only is it the best gift receiving day of the year, but it’s TUESDAYBOOZEDAY! We suggest you summon the ghosts of christmas past, present and the future, and all toast to the occasion with this Winter White Cosmo!
3 oz. Van Gogh Vodka Citroen
1 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. Freshly squeezed lime juice (plus more for rimming)
Fresh mint leaves
Sugar covered cranberries
Glass length skewers
To rim the glass: Dip rim in lime juice and then roll in icing sugar. Looks a little like snow, no?
To make the cocktail: Mix vodka, grand marnier and lime juice with ice in a martini shaker. Give a good shake, shake, shake and strain into your rimmed glass. To garnish, skewer some cranberries and mint, and lay em across the lip. Pinkies up, this one is fancy, and enjoy!
Whether or not you’re celebrating somewhere where there’s plenty of “white Christmas” snow, this Cosmo is gonna get you in the mood for all the good things the day will bring. You know, seeing the extended family, watching Elf on TV for the third time and one heck of a food coma, baby.
MERRY CHRISTMAS NEWRDS!
