I hope you ladies know that New York Fashion week is totally heeeeeeeeere and we are more than excited! I don’t know about you but when I am thumbing through my fashion mags, my favorite accessory is a glass of wine or a yummy cocktail. I have some definite go-tos that are yummy, classic and easy to make. Want to know what I’ll be sipping on this Fashion Week?
The Manhattan, for obvious reasons
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 maraschino cherry
1 twist orange peel
Combine the vermouth, bourbon whiskey, and bitters with 2 – 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don’t bruise the spirits and cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils but don’t drop it in.
The Cosmopolitan, because how Carrie Bradshaw (the show not the movies) is that?
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz Rose’s® lime juice
1/2 oz cranberry juice
The Long Island Iced Tea, well… because it’s delicious!
1 part tequila
1 part rum
1 part gin
1 part triple sec
1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix
1 splash Coca-Cola®
3 tablespoons Cointreau
2 tablespoons brandy
1 3/4 cups champagne
Raspberries, apples, or other seasonal fruit
Fill a small ice bucket halfway with ice. Pour grenadine, Cointreau, brandy, and champagne over ice. Stir gently, and ladle punch into 2 wide-mouthed stemmed glasses. Garnish punch with raspberries, apples, or any other fruit in season.
As always, you should totally drink responsibly. We are fashionable and responsible here at The Fashionable Housewife!
