This painting will be at the Art Stable Gallery next week!
In Maine last week, I made Cosmos for my painter friends! I'd done a LOT of research into how to make the BEST, and I've decided to share with all of you -kind of like I'm making one for you, OK? Here goes:
- Chill the glass, the vodka and the shaker in the freezer
- crack about 3-4 ice cubes (don't have a fridge that does this? me either - I use a rolling pin and a zip lock bag!)
- 1 jigger of Cointreau (no substitutions)
- 1 jigger of chilled cranberry juice cocktail
- 2 jiggers of Absolute (Citron is ok, but plain is just fine)
- 1/2 a lime, plus a slice
Crack the ice, get the shaker out of the freezer, and put ice in. Add the Cointreau, juice, and vodka - shake vigorously 10 times.
NOW get the glass out of the fridge. Squeeze the 1/2 lime into the glass, and strain the mix into the glass - toss in a sliver of lime - and enjoy immediately! Cold is the key. One drink at a time - leave the glasses in the freezer till it's 'their' time! ENJOY!
Un verre ça va... deux verres bonjour les dégâts ! Alors trois verres!... tout simplement qu'ils sont magnifiques!ReplyDelete
Looks yummy, and sounds yummy!! Great colors, I love the pink and green!ReplyDelete
Love the title and the color of the drink itself. I have to admit it sounds a bit on the strong side for me. Not much of a vodka person. But it sure is pretty!ReplyDelete
Fantastic painting and thanks for sharing the great recipe. I'd like one right now, please.ReplyDelete
Three sound lethal! This is really nice, Kelley. I especially like the pink reflections down in the stems of the glasses.ReplyDelete
:) Thanks, everyone! These were not for ONE person!!! We each had ONE! The title came from Tim Cavanaugh, I had put it on Facebook and asked for title help, and everyone loved his!ReplyDelete
