Notice the two cherries? Laura’s mom said we were like “Two Cherries in One Tiki Drink.” I love that!! And we are exactly that! You never know why people come into your life….but when someone special does, it is truly a gift!
The Cosmopolitan has always been popular, but it became uber popular with the show “Sex and the City.” I have to admit, I’ve never seen the show! When it was popular, my kids were little and I was last in line for the remote (even after the Nickelodeon channel got turned off) but that hasn’t stopped me from loving the Cosmo. It’s strong but sweet without a huge alcohol flavor like some martinis. So how could I not make one Tiki style! The key to this is the pineapple vodka! I promise it is worth the minimal effort – the hardest part is waiting a few weeks while the pineapple and vodka steep. View Drunken Pineapple recipe (there is a lazy version too.
Who knows, with so many streaming services, maybe I can become a fan of the show now! I’ve got the perfect drink to enjoy while I watch it!
2 shots pineapple vodka
2 shots Surinam cherry juice (or just buy a tart cherry juice or cranberry juice will do in a pinch)
1 shot triple sec
Squeeze of lime
In a shaker of ice, add all ingredients. Shake for at least 30 seconds to really chill the liquid. Pour in your favorite martini glass and enjoy!
