Summer Sips: Cosmopolitan Slushy
In honor of the Sex and the City movie, I had to make a cosmo this week. Here's a summery twist on the classic cocktail.
Recipe courtesy of Real Simple
10 ounce (1 1/4 cups) citrus-flavored vodka
1/2 cup Rose's lime juice
2 cups cranberry juice
2 cups water
4 ice cube trays
Combine vodka, lime juice, and cranberry juice in a pitcher with 2 cups water and stir to blend. Divide between ice cube trays and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight (the drink cubes will freeze only partially). Just before serving, empty trays into a large bowl and using a fork, break up cubes to loosen ice crystals (the ice will be slushlike). Spoon slush into tall stemmed glasses and serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
