SATC and the Cosmo

I went to see the Sex and the City movie this week. I've always been a fan of the TV show, especially when I was working in NYC, and I found the film funny and entertaining--like catching up with old friends.

At the end, the girls toast with their signature Cosmopolitans. They ask why they ever stopped drinking them, and then smartly note it was because everyone else started. The drink has become a bit of a cliche, and its pink color has assured its popularity with mainly the female of the species...

If you are a fan (or a closet fan), check out Zola's version. It's made with white cranberry juice to appeal to BOTH sexes. Let's face it: if the cocktail is made properly, as Zola's is, the tart blend of cranberry and lime really marries well with the vodka.

And if you haven't checked out the SATC movie, the theater will be a cool respite this weekend, as temperatures in the DC area are going to go above 95.
