Saturday Sippers and the Cosmopolitan
Saturday Sippers in The Locker
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Welcome to the feature here in The Locker called Saturday Sippers. Each week I’ll post a new, sometimes, skinny cocktail recipe for you to try. Many thinks to my Cali Bestie, Rhonda, for providing me with the deck of cards recipe book. J
Every time I think of the Cosmopolitan, I think of Ryan Gosling's line (as Jacob Palmer) from Crazy, Stupid, Love - "You're sitting there with a Supercuts hair cut, you're getting drunk on watered Vodka Cranberries like a fourteen year old girl and you're wearing a forty four when you should be wearing a forty two regular. Honestly, I don't know if I should help you or I should euthanize you."
Poor Steve (Cal Weaver) Carell, but, what a movie. I love it!
