Cocktail du jour: Parisian Cosmo

I stay far away from all the new fangled flavors of vodkas one can find these days. Salted caramel whipped cream? That's just asking for a nasty hangover. Leave it for the young twenty-somethings with healthy livers. 

I'm a classics kind of girl, Stoli orange or Stoli raspberry is more to my taste. Although Mr. C&G has an excellent recipe involving Ciroc coconut that I'll definitely have to post about. 

So when I strolled past the Chambord flavored vodka in the store the other day, I kept walking. But on a cocktail menu recently they had a Parisian Cosmo, made with Chambord vodka. I was intrigued. And so happy I ordered it. It was absolute cosmo perfection! No overly sweet tart flavor and none of that cheek-puckering that turns you into Renee Zellweger after the first sip.

The Chambord vodka has a very clean, pure, essence of raspberry flavor. Very smooth, lightly pink, and totally delicious. I'm not quite sure of the measurements yet, but I'm happy to take on the responsibility of finding out. All in the name of research, of course. Looks like I'll be making a special trip back to the store to fill up my cart. . .
