The Menu Thief’s French Cosmopolitan
As you know, it’s been a long week. A week when Miss Skye has been sick — again — and Mr. Candy has been traveling. Again. At this point, I’ve become convinced Mr. Candy is clairvoyant and purposely schedules his business trips to coincide with Skye’s colds — returning on the very day she starts feeling better and I’m making TGIF drinks. Hmmmm. Coincidence? I. Don’t. Think. So.
Speaking of clairvoyance, I was just thinking this morning that I was plumb out of TGIF drink ideas when what should appear in my in-box…? (Besides the exciting opportunity to “Buy Viagra from Online Canadian Pharmacy Mega Sale,” that is.) A scanned menu listing delicious martini recipes, courtesy of Laughing Stork reader, fellow drink enthusiast and thief, Lainey, who “borrowed” the menu from a martini bar. Which is why this TGIF drink is named after her…
THE MENU THIEF’S TGIF FRENCH COSMO (with “Sex and the City” premiering next week, I thought we’d get a head start on the cosmos… and, well, I also happened to have these libations on-hand)
- 1-1/2 oz. Ketel One (although any vodka will do)
- 1/2 oz. Chambord
- 3 oz. Pineapple juice
An easy one for all of us worn-and-weary mamas after a long week: Shake the ingredients together with ice, strain into a martini glass, sip, then smack your lips and exhale loudly as a classy lady such as myself would do.
This bad boy and I have a date planned on the rooftop later this evening. Have a great weekend, everyone.
