If you’re going to be watching “Sex and the City,” and for God’s sake, why are you, you need to have Cosmos for your lady friend. Guys don’t drink these unless there is absolutely NOTHING else to drink in the house, bar, liquor store or hobo’s paper bag.
But, you can’t really go wrong ordering this for your date while out for cocktails and movies.


  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Cointreau orange liqueur
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 oz cranberry juice
  • Orange peel for garnish


  1. Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel.

Movie Suggestion:

Pretty sure that if you’re a guy reading this, A.  your movie has already been picked out for you and B. it’s probably a derivative of the RomCom formula. It might even be “Sex and the City.” Or the sequel. Although we don’t know why.
