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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
