The yard is brown, brown, brown and there’s random snowflakes falling outside. It’s supposed to be spring, stupid Smarch weather…. Friends are packing up and headed to Miami this week for Miami Music Week/Winter Music Conference/Ultra Music Festival (that used to be us once!) Me, I’m dreaming of warmer weather, and green plants.

I can’t recall the last time we made Cosmos in this house, but for once we actually had cranberry juice on hand and I thought “Why not make a Cosmo?” Usually my longing for spring and summer drink is a French Martini. (May also be missing warm nights sipping drinks and having appetizers along the Intercoastal Waterway with Dave and other friends in Florida too. Seems like a lifetime ago!)

Dreaming of warmer weather: It's Cosmo'clock

 

Classic Cosmo

  • 2 parts Vodka
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part cranberry juice
  • Lemon or lime peel/twist garnish

 

Fast forward a few hours later…..we sat down to watch Neil deGrasse Tyson on the new “Cosmos” series. Random, related, and awesome. Drinks and space!
