Cranberry Cosmopolitan

Even though this recipe says that it serves, two, I am not ashamed to admit that it served one.  Me.  Very nicely, thank you very much.

As a matter of fact, if I could, I would have put this in a baby bottle and carried it around with me, nipple clamped between my teeth, bottle dangling like older toddlers do.  Ready whenever needed. 

Cranberry Cosmopolitan

(From Cooking Light 2004 Annual – same place the Cranberry Liqueur came from)

Place crushed ice in a martini shaker.  Add 1/2 cup Cranberry Liqueur, 1/4 cup Cointreau, and 2 Tablespoons lime juice; strain into martini glasses.  Yield:  2 cocktails.

Fantastic! I have everything on hand for this one and I have a feeling that it will go down very smoothly (especially after a week of snow days).

Thanks for sharing Pam.

I have to agree - - it serves ONE! LOL! I have always loved this cocktail and oh with the cranberry juice, it's so healthy for us HA HA!!!!

I love your new blog! Wish I could comment on your other 'puppy' blog, but I can never find your comment button. Just wanted to say that your roast pork tenderloin with bacon (Giada theme) looks fantastic.
