Sparkling Cosmopolitan

Last week we made a trip to Alexandria's local speakeasy, the PX Lounge.  If you live in the area and you haven't been, you gotta go.  I am not sure which is better about the place - the atmosphere or the hand crafted drinks.  Seriously, they are works of art.

Inspired by their artful concoctions, my husband claimed today that he wanted to be a "mixologist" for the evening.  Not wanting to squelch his dreams, I agreed (I mean, he really had to twist my arm).  Together we crafted the Sparkling Cosmopolitan.

What you need:
1.5 ounces vodka
1 ounce Grand Mariner
1 ounce sparkling cranberry juice
.5 ounce Rose's sweetened lime juice

What you'll do:
Add 1 cup of ice to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. 

Serve immediately.  Garnish with lime if desired.

Note: I didn't have any cosmo glasses in the house but love how this drink looks in my grandmother's beautiful crystal glasses.  Any girly, dainty glass will do!  Enjoy!

  1. You two have GOT to come visit my hood and go to Wisdom, the cocktail bar up the street! It's awesome - the decor is super cozy and intimate, the drinks are amazing, and the owner's puppy is usually wandering around! I am itching to go try their new seasonal hot spiced cider cocktail.
