The Rose Cosmopolitan

Girls weekend! And what better way to start off a weekend with some of my favorite ladies than with a nice kick-you-in-the-butt cocktail!

My mom created this Cosmopolitan recipe, which shows you what kind of badass, Southern mother I have. Caution - much like my blood orange martini - this is not for the weak-spirited!

The Rose Cosmopolitan

Yields: 1 cocktail
Prep Time: does it matter??

2 parts vodka

1 part Grand Marnier
1 part Organic cranberry juice
1/2 lime, split into 2 wedges

If you like your cocktails cold, put your martini glass in the freezer for 15-20 minutes before making the drink. Or, fill the glass with ice water and let sit for 15-20 minutes.

Get out the cocktail shaker and fill halfway with ice. Pour in the vodka, Grand Marnier, cranberry juice. Squeeze one of the lime wedges into the shaker, close and shake really well. Rub the other lime wedge around the rim of the glass, and place on the side for garnish. Pour in the cosmo mixture and drink yourself into the weekend baby!!!
