Happy Hour Friday: Metropolitan
This martini is another go-to favorite from our “Martini Guide” ranking system. The recipe is basic and easy to mix, except Absolut Kurant can be difficult to come by. Our local liquor shop carries it just for us, I think! LOL
I like to mix this up in larger batches ahead of time and pop in the freezer until time to serve. Makes a great cocktail for parties since you don’t have to slave away continuing to mix these up all night. As any hostess knows, anything that can be made ahead of time is a party-friendly recipe
2 oz Absolut Kurant Vodka
2 oz triple sec
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz cranberry juice
Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with fresh lime.
I have to give a shout out to my sister “G.” Today is her birthday and we will be drinking these to celebrate.
“Happy Birthday, Girlfriend! We will raise our glasses to many, many more.”
