Monday Cocktail: Cointreaupolitan

But I have had to give up certain things in my life. One is shopping. Two is lunch with the girls. Three is cocktail parties, and four is studying my lines.

Ask me what I would crave for on a hot day, sitting under palm trees with my beach hat on. Or on a wooden bench shaded by a canopy of oak trees, with slight breeze wafting through the hair....

...I would go for a thirst-quenching, subtly spiked cocktail.

From the classic Mojito (also called as the drink of sailors?) to our Apple Martinis, all of them have their very own flavour profile and story to tell. Stir them, shake them, just neat, on the rocks, straight up, with a kick, or dirty - try them any which way possible, everyone would love a good cocktail....

Today, I made one such surprising and mouth-watering cocktail for you all - "Cointreaupolitan", made with Cointreau, very popular orange liqueur which is made from a perfect balance of bitter and sweet orange peels. it is at the heart of many famous cocktails.

Just 3 ingredients, shake it with ice = One perfect cocktail!!

{Recipe} Cointreaupolitan


50ml (1.6 fl oz) Cointreau
30ml (1 fl oz) Cranberry juice
20ml (0.6 fl oz) Lemon juice


Pour all three ingredients into a shaker with ice. Serve optionally with orange zest.

Now, for some good news which most of you all already know and got me excited today...a mention about my Project 365 in Deccan Herald news paper. You can read the complete article here. Thanks Rohini. I couldn't have asked for more and it sure is a befitting finale to my 2011 P365. Yipeee.. :-) A huge thank you to everybody who encouraged with their lovely comments which in turn inspired me all along the way. Truth be told, posting a picture, every single day of the year, without missing a day - is exhausting but certainly makes me very happy and.... I have a very good reason to raise a toast to all you wonderful ppl. <3 <3 <3..

until next time,
