If you like most single (and married!) women across the world, have been following the lives of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte for some time and are dying to see the newly released Sex and the City DVD, what better way to watch the final chapter than in your apartment with friends at a party, serving up the girls' choice of drink, a cosmopolitan.   Making a Cosmo can be quite simple if you follow these steps and after a few glasses you and your friends will be laughing and crying along with the film in high style

  1. Mix vodka, lime juice, cranberry juice, Cointreau, and vodka in equal parts in a cocktail shaker with ice. (Note: The amount of vodka you add is going to determine not only how potent your drink is, but how sweet your overall creation is. Sometimes less is more!)
  2. Shake twice firmly and set aside. Take each cocktail glass and lightly moisten the ring with cranberry juice.
  3. Now dip the rim into sugar so you have a sweet frosty glow around the rim.
  4. Careful to avoid the sugar rim, pour the mixture through the cocktail strainer and into the glass.
  5. Add a lemon garnish to the edge of the glass, and viola! Your very own Carrie approved Cosmopolitan for your party.

Tip: If you do not have a cocktail shaker at home, simply use a tall glass with a makeshift lid to mix the drink contents, and then use a strainer to keep the ice out of your glasses!
