TGIF! It’s time for happy hour. For this week’s Cocktail Friday, I’m taking inspiration from the iconic TV show, Sex & The City. Grab those slim martini glasses and put on your best pair of heels, because we’re having Cosmopolitans.
For a long time this was my drink of choice whenever I went out on the town. I always feel chic and sophisticated whenever I sip this pretty pink cocktail. To be honest, I think it has something to do with those pretty martini glasses.
When it comes to pairing this cocktail with food, I reach for fancier appetizers like crostini or bruschetta.
