Key Lime Pie martinis, anyone? We love this colorful cocktail guide from the editors at Cosmopolitan magazine: Cosmo’s Official Cocktail Book: The Sexiest Drinks for Every Occasion. It’s organized by mood (Ready for Some Fun? Get Your Flirt On! Fearless & Fabulous) and features colorful photos and easy-to-follow instructions for each cocktail. Plus, even though the drinks are undeniably girlie, they all actually sound drinkable and not like a hangover in a glass. Here’s one our favorite recipes:
A Chocolate Martini—7 Square Restaurant, New York City (shown top)
2 oz. vodka
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 oz. Frangelico
4 oz. chilled hot chocolate
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake, and pour into a stemmed glass. To make it even sweeter, dip the rim of the glass in honey and then in cookie crumbs.
