In a recent Instagram post (watch it here!) Ina Garten declared, “It’s always cocktail hour in a crisis!” while shaking up a batch of classic Cosmopolitans. The good news: you too can follow suit, shaking up the fruity concoction in the comfort of your own kitchen, with The Barefoot Contessa‘s reliable recipe. Simply combine vodka, orange liqueur, cranberry juice and freshly squeezed lime juice for a tart, refreshing beverage that you can share with someone else… or keep it all to yourself. No judgement here. Giant martini glass optional!
