When it comes to drinking, I don't discriminate against alcohol and enjoy uber girlie drinks as much as any manly concoction. That's why when I saw this recipe, created specifically with the Sex and the City viewer in mind by Skyy vodka, I knew I had to give it a try. It's a sublime combination of vodka and fresh citrus with a little bit of creme de cassis (a black currant flavored liqueur). A sugared rim adds a pop of color and lightly sweetens the drink. It's a fabulous and fun cocktail that's easy to make and perfect for a girl's night in. To serve this to your friends — be sure to use the special Sex and the City bottle of vodka! — get the recipe.
