SATC 2 Cocktails - Bye Bye, Cosmo!



Happy Thursday, Shopaholics! Thanks so much for all your kind emails and comments about the oil spill. Admittedly, I have been consumed with this event; as well as a little depressed. :-(

Today I thought it would be fun to talk about the new SATC 2 movie! I don't know about you, but I cannot wait for the movie to premiere! I get even more excited every time I see the trailer, and want to plan a Girls Night Out to see the movie! I wish all of you lived close, and we could go together! Wouldn't that be fun?!?!?!?!

Of course we all remember watching the SATC series, and being inspired by the fashion. Who else wanted Carrie's show wardrobe? TDF, in my opinion of course! Didn't we all start drinking Cosmos just because Carrie and the girls did??? The pink drink, which is a mixture of vodka, Triple Sec and cranberry juice, found its way into bars all over the country after SATC made it famous.

Lucky for us, SKYY Vodka has created a signature drink for each girl - there's even one for Big! How fun is that? For your enjoyment, here are the drinks (along with the recipes for each). Drink up!

THE CARRIE:

2 oz. SKYY Vodka
0.5 oz. fresh lemon juice

0.5 oz. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
Drop of crème de cassis

Rim a crystallized Swarovski martini glass with crème de cassis and sugar (first dip the rim in a shallow dish filled with crème de cassis and then into a dish of sugar). Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into the martini glass. Finish the cocktail with a drop of crème de cassis on top.

THE SAMANTHA:

2 oz. SKYY Infusions Pineapple

1 oz. fresh lime juice
0.75 oz. Triple Sec
0.75 oz. crème de cacao

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.


THE CHARLOTTE:

1.5 oz. SKYY Infusions Grape

3 oz. 7-Up
0.25 oz. fresh lemon juice
0.25 oz. red wine

Squeeze and drop half a lemon into a cocktail shaker. Add SKYY Infusions Grape and 7-Up with ice and stir. Strain into a tall Collins glass with fresh ice and float red wine over the top of the drink.


THE MIRANDA:

2 oz. SKYY Infusions Ginger

1 oz. honey syrup
0.75 oz. fresh lemon juice


Combine all ingredients (to create honey syrup, combine 0.5 oz. water with 0.5 oz. honey) in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Set a lemon peel twirl across the rim of the glass with a cocktail pick.
THE MR. BIG:

2 oz. SKYY Infusions Cherry

0.5 oz. Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon
0.75 oz. cola

Combine SKYY Infusions Cherry Vodka, Wild Turkey Bourbon and cola in a cocktail shaker with ice and stir. Pour into a double rocks glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Which cocktail sounds the best to you? Are you planning to see the movie when it premieres? I think I need to check my vodka stash and possibly stock up!

Have a great day!

  4. Wow, these are all so fun, and I definitely want to try them all. I may have to use The Carrie in next week's Thirsty Thursday, close to the big event, when SATC2 premieres. :)

  8. These are such cute drinks! I saw them the other day on the Skyy website and it got me even more excited for the movie. My girlfriends and I are having a SATC party before we go see the second movie-complete with cocktails and watching the first SATC. I will be wearing my pink pumps! I'm going to try the Charlotte-everyone always tells me my personality is similar to hers!
