Cocktails Anyone


So I have a great boss. Who I've talked about before here. This year he gave everyone in our department and that's 10 of us a fantastic gift. It's a new take on a cosmopolitan. It's called the Sparkling Mandarin. Here's the instructions he gave us:

3 ounces of Mandarin Vodka
1 ounce of Triple Sec
1 ounce of Cranberry juice

Shake well...

Remove lid from shaker and add 2 ounces of Sparkling Blood Orange French Soda. (Included in the lovely package above)

Then stir well - do not shake - the soda is carbonated.

Add a squeeze of fresh lime.

Toss the ice water and strain cocktail into the chilled glasses.

Serve with the garnish of your choice (martini cranberries, lime twists or orange slices).

Sip and enjoy!
Serves 2

I told my friend Jessica about this fantastic gift and she asked that I have the cocktail shaker ready in the waiting room for her after she delivers her first baby. Can you hear the ice now?

oh dear, my silent interloper, boss, told me it's really 3 oz's. So I've updated my blog post to make sure you have the right recipe.

One more ammendment to this post. It's 4 ounces of Vodka. How I missed this important detail I have no idea. I made this last night for some friends. They loved it.
