At long last....
arriving like an old friend. After five full days of work and school.......it's Friday.
Post Thanksgiving. Post FFOs (forced-family outings). Post wicked long weekend. A most welcome harbinger to two days of weekend.
And how would you like that, Friday? Two Cosmos and some sweet and dreamy hors d'oeuvres? Oh, and a fire?
From The Odeon, New York City
The origins of the quintessential 1990s cocktail are not entirely clear, but many credit Toby Cecchini, a former bartender at this TriBeCa brasserie.
2 1/2 ounces lemon vodka
1 ounce triple sec
1 ounce cranberry juice
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 lemon twist
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka, triple sec and cranberry and lime juices and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the lemon twist. Enjoy.
