Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Blackberry Cosmo

April 06, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There!

We hope you and your family are well! This week we sharing a drink that has many similarities to the Kamikaze shot from last week (link here). The Cosmopolitan is a combination of vodka, orange liqueur, lime juice, and cranberry juice. Our twist on this modern classic is adding blackberries. The Cosmopolitan, or, 'Cosmo,' gained popularity in the 1990s mainly due to the HBO show, Sex and the City. A show that neither Frank nor I watched, but nevertheless, this must have for S.J.P. and her crew might end up being one of your favorites. We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
