A little while ago, I spent a fews days doing graphic design work in an office. When Friday came around, I was ready for a good, strong drink. I mixed up these babies and it was like pouring heaven into a glass. At the time I didn’t have a martini glass (I’ve since rectified this error), so I just used a short glass which I nicknamed a lowball. This drink is juicy, tart and provides just the right amount of kick. The rest of the evening was beyond pleasant…listening to music and reading books. TGIF, indeed. This drink is also pink so it makes for a lovely drink to have on Valentine’s Day. So go ahead, toast yourself, toast your loved one or toast your cat. C’mon get happy!
the working girl’s lowball
juice from 1/2 an orange
juice from 1/2 a lime
cranberry juice (I eyeballed this…but I’ll guess 1/2 – 3/4 c)
1/2 t sugar syrup
1 oz Grand Marnier
3 oz Vodka
Mix everything in a pretty silver cocktail shaker and then shake, shake, shake. Pour into 2 glasses and drink up at your leisure.
