Happy Hour: Cosmo-Not

Most of the time, non-alcoholic drinks are simple, you open the bottle and you pour it into a glass. Sure there are a lot of great non-alcoholic options out there, but what if the drink recipient was hoping for something a little more unique? Well, don't fret, I've got the perfect recipe for you! Taking its cue from a classic Cosmopolitan, a Cosmo-Not is the perfect blend of citrus, pomegranate and cranberry. To start serving these up at your next shindig,

lalalaurie- As a bartender, I will say that most bartenders in restaurants will NOT know how to make the mentioned drink. Regular Cosmos, sure, but the recipe above uses a few ingredients many bartenders don't keep behind the bar (i.e., vanilla, pomegranate juice). If you want, bring the recipe with you and some bartenders may be willing to make your drink, or some version of it. It does sound good!

this sounds so good! I have a couple of friends who don't drink so this would be perfect for them.

Cranberry juice and sprite/7up/fresca with a squirt of lime is also divine!
