The girls over at Heartless Doll take aim at some of the worst girl drinks of all time. And they target the cosmopolitan. HOW DARE THEY! What would Carrie say? Here’s their take:
“Much like cupcakes, Cosmo’s were–for many years–ruined for me by the show Sex and the City. It seemed like everyone with a vagina, from high-powered execs on Wall Street to mall chicks in Topeka, Kansas, was racing to their local bar as fast as they could in their four-inch spike heels for 5 years straight to order the damn things, stand around with their “favorite gals,” yuk it up and screech loudly about how much they’re lovin’ the single life and what “cads” anyone in possession of a penis who isn’t gay invariably ends up being. And it’s too bad, because the joke was on me: the ultimate chicktail of all time is more of a lady to contend with than any of the other lightweights on this list. Delicious, tart, crisp–and yes, a joy to behold–just like Carrie on her good days, the Cosmo goes down smooth without leaving a sugary aftertaste. Recipe (for disaster?): 2 oz. vodka, 1 oz. Cointreau, 1 oz. cranberry juice, 1 oz. lime juice. Mix ingredients in shaker with ice and strain into martini glass. Sip with your favorite “gal pals” and join me in getting over myself.”
I’m unconvinced. Rest of the article here.
