Cranberry Sauce Cosmo: It's Almost Five O'Clock Friday

It's been said a women become their mother at age 31 or when they have their first child. I would say at this age I've just come to appreciate her hot rollers, taste for a good cocktail and use for leftovers. Perhaps this is one of my finest recipes developed over this holiday season.

Cranberry Sauce Cosmo

In a cocktail shaker or Mason Jar filled with ice combine:

1/4 cup leftover whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/4 cup vodka
3 Tbsp. simple syrup*
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

Shake, strain and serve in martini glass.


* Equal parts sugar and water, heated until dissolved
