#DOTW: Cognac Cosmo

Let’s have another cocktail tonight. Or several. Or save this recipe for tomorrow. It’s Mothers Day, and I imagine there are a ton of moms who are ready to get their drink on. Most households have the children at home, needing to be home schooled, husbands are home all day and night, some of the moms have to work from home, while still taking care of things in the house. Not easy. So yes, let them have a few drinks, so they can let their hair down. I know most women love a Cosmopolitan, but this one has a twist, it is served with Cognac, and it’s super delicious!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Remy 1738 (or quality cognac or your choice)
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz cranberry juice

In a cocktail shaker combine ice and all above ingredients. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lemon.

Cheers and be safe, and Happy Mothers Day to all the moms!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
