Easy Recipe For White Cosmo Cocktail

Happy Hour: White Cosmopolitan

This week — the span of time when one has barely recovered from Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas hysteria has not fully begun — I've decided to dine in a manner that's as pared-down as possible. After all the roulades and triple chocolate pumpkin pies, there's something nice about a dinner of roast chicken and butternut squash.

The same goes for cocktails. I've been sipping a drink, the white Cosmopolitan, that possesses an elegant simplicity that most beverages don't have. It tastes nearly identical to the popular favorite, except it gets its gin-clear appearance from white cranberry juice, which is made from berries that are harvested before they turn red.

The result is a libation that's mysterious yet familiar, and glamorous while also practical. Learn how to make it when you read more.
