Shouldn't You Just...?
Concoct the pale cosmo that was served at Flaming Saddles during the book launch party for my equally bracing novel, the pale of memory? The basic ingredients and method are below, but less cranberry juice is used so the cocktail appears...paler.
the pale cosmo
1 1/4 oz thrilling vodka
1/4 oz memorable Cointreau or Grand Marnier
1/4 oz shocking lime juice
The faintest trickle of cranberry juice
An insinuating wedge of lime for garnish
Pour liquids over some rocks in a mindful mixing glass. Give it a few good shakes and strain into a chilling martini glass. After a throttling the lime, throw it in at the end and do enjoy!
Flaming Saddles is located at 793 Ninth Ave (btwn 52nd/53rd Sts), 212-713-0481, Flaming Saddles.com.
