Right. Now I’m showing my complete ignorance about mixed drinks. After my resounding success with martinis, I figured I would look for variations. Not caring for pearl onions, I figured that I wouldn’t care for a Gibson. So, I thought I’d try for the other major variation, a Cosmopolitan. I had the Absolut Citron and Triple Sec already, so I stopped by the store for some cranberry juice.
Understand, I don’t drink very much at all. I don’t order drinks at bars. And, more importantly, I have never watched Sex and the City. I was totally unaware that a cosmopolitan is a "girl’s drink." All I could do was marvel how pink this stuff turned out to be. All of the online photos in the recipes showed something a bit more, well, reddish. All Laura could do was laugh at my naivete and enjoy her drink.
Couple this with the new froufrou website, and I was in the midst of a serious crisis. There was nothing more to do but grab a beer and watch the Furman game on TV.

If you think the Cosmo tests the bounds of your manhood…prep the beers and make sure there is a football game on somewhere in the world…I’ve got a martini concoction Laura will love and don’t tell anyone..but you will too. It’s called a french kiss and yes it’s PINK! I discovered this at the NCETC trade show while entertaining the Gaston County, NC crew…technology guru’s like to drink too:
Stoli Vanilla 1.0 oz
Chambord .75 oz
Champagne .75 oz
Pineapple Juice .75 oz
Serve chilled with no fruit. You can play with the mixture to suit.
It’s saturday, so if you don’t have time today…save for another saturday!
Thanks, Jay. I’ll give it a try. Of course, I won’t tell anyone about it 😉
