The Cosmopolitan is an absolute classic in terms of girly cocktails. Anyone that has ever seen Sex And The City knows that the Cosmo is the essence of a girls night out! With Halloween coming up next Thursday, we couldn’t just leave it at a “normal” glamorous cocktail for this week’s Bubbly Friday. Take a classy Cosmo add some bloody eyes, fake spiders and skull vodka, and you’re all set for a girls night gone spooky!
What you’ll need:
– crushed ice, to serve
– 2 shots (60ml) vodka
– 1 shot (30ml) Cointreau or triple sec
– 1 tsp lime juice
– 125ml cranberry juice
– canned lychees (2 per glass)
– frozen raspberries
– 1 wedge of lime
Place the crushed ice in a martini glass. Then prepare your glasses by simply wetting the rim of the glass with a wedge of lime and then dipping the glass into sugar (which you can spread out on a plate). Next, create your “eye balls” by stuffing a frozen raspberry into a lychee and making a cut along the bottom, in order to be able to stick them on the rim of your glasses. In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, Cointreau (or triple sec), lime and cranberry juice and shake well. Strain into the prepared glass, then serve immediately. Cheers to a spooky Halloween!
