Candy’s TGIF Cosmopolitan


Candy’s TGIF Cosmopolitan

I’m going to see “Sex and the City” with the girls tonight and, based on the reviews, I’m going to need A LOT of these beforehand.  Yikes.  Oh, how I hate that they’ve tarnished the legacy of one of my favorite TV shows with these sub-par films, BUT… of course I’m still going to see it.  Because that’s the kind of sucker I am.

Naturally, this week’s TGIF drink is…



  • 1 oz. Vodka (Being in a party mood, I used the kind that comes in a Disco Ball)
  • 1 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz. Lime Juice


Shake with ice, strain and recite favorite “Sex and the City” line.  (e.g., “Oh my god! She’s fashion roadkill!”  or… “I think I have monogamy. I must have caught it from you people.”) Or… just drink your Cosmo like a sane person.

I don’t own any Manolos, so, in the spirit of “Sex and the City”‘s fabulous footwear, I thought I’d take the Cosmo’s picture with the only pair of Jimmy Choos I have.  Which no longer fit my big-ass feet that GREW after having a baby.

Also, as I was taking this picture, I was like, ew.  My dirty shoes are on the dining room table. Great idea, Candy!

Oh well.  I won’t care about the nasty shoes or the movie’s shortcomings after a few of these.  Just happy to get out of the house tonight.  Bottoms up!
