Thirsty Thursday: Carrie’s Classic Cosmo

From the first Sex and the City movie:

Miranda:  Why did we ever stop drinking these?
Carrie:  Because everyone else started.
Samatha:  Well, that one’s an oldie but goodie.

Carrie’s Classic Cosmo


1oz Vodka
1/2oz Triple Sec
1/2oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/2oz Cranberry Juice

Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a lemon or lime twist.

Now how many of you ladies are going to sneak these in, when you see the premiere?  Haha.

And what would I be wearing?

A great Pink and Green Thursday look, right Trish?

I know it seems a little un-Cosmopolitan, but channeling Charlotte, I would wear this dress, since she wore this Lilly pattern in the movie last night!  I have a feeling it’s going to be a pretty popular little Lilly piece.  And the TB tan sandals would go with everything!

The SATC2 pre-screening was so much fun last night!  I think I loved it just as much, if not more, than the first movie.  I mean, c’mon, Aidan came back!  I’ll post my re-cap on tomorrow’s Fashion Friday post, so stay tuned.  Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything for you ladies seeing it soon!  I also took some pictures, but unfortunately I only brought my small digital one, so the quality is a little poor AND my battery died way too soon.  At least I got some taken, right?  Y’all, they had camels and belly dancers at the event!

Obviously the location yesterday was Egypt.  They don’t exactly head to Egypt, but to the UAE (United Arab Emirates), but it still looks like a very fun place to travel.

  1. Seriously, camels and belly dancers?? Now that's a party! I love cosmos and, yes, it was "Sex" that got me started.

    I can't wait to see your photos.

    By the way, love the sandals, and I think you are right, if Charlotte wore a LP pattern in the movie it's destine for popularity. That is so cool 🙂

    Enjoy your Thursday.

  2. Yummy! I will be going out for cosmopolitans before seeing the movie, but not until Tuesday after Memorial Day weekend… I can't stand the wait much longer! You will look beautiful in your Lilly dress – and you will match Charlotte! Too cute.

    Thanks for the update on the Bonannos! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they arrive in time for my wedding week festivities…

  3. I cannot WAIT to go tonight. I never forgave Carrie for dumping Aidan. I remember telling my husband that I was leaving him for Aidan when Carrie threw in the towel. Looking forward to all the fashion tonight too. Ooooh! That Lily dress is so Charlotte.

  4. Mmm…cosmos! I need to make some this weekend or at least order one at the bar 😉

    I love the dress that you’ve decided to wear and I remember seeing photos of Charlotte with that print on.

    I’m so glad that you had fun at the premiere! It sounds like quite an event. Now I really cannot wait to see the movie. I look forward to seeing the photos you were able to take!

  5. Oh my gosh, I am so flippin jealous that you got to see SATC last night!!! I am obsessed with that Lilly pattern… it is one of my favorites this year!

  6. YAY! I'm so glad you loved the movie, now I'm even more excited to see it! Those Tory Burch sandals are amazing. I'd love to wear them to the movie on Sunday. 🙂 Can't wait to see your post for tomorrow!


  7. Hi sweetheart! Doing a little quick blog reading @ Starbucks in between client appointments, and wanted to run over to tell you how fabulous your evening sounded! Cosmos, belly dancers and camels, oh my!! I don't know if I could get away with sneaking cosmos into the theater, but pre-game, yes ma'am! 🙂

    Your outfit is perfectly beyond perfect! Love that print, so cute, and the nude TB's are too adorable (which reminds me I've been looking for a perfect nude pair of summer sandals, I will have to keep a lookout for those heehee!)

    I'm going to link up with you now sweetie, hope you're having a wonderful week!! xoxoxo

  8. So fitting! I am getting so excited for this movie! I can't wait to read everyones reviews on Monday.

    🙂 Marcie

  9. GREAT post — love the cocktail recipes!!
    What a fab event — camels and belly dancers?!?! how swank!
    i know you had an amazing time. I'm saving the movie to see with my bf when i return from vaca, but that's not until June 12… how will I stand it?!?
    have a great vaca yourself, with your family!

  10. Precious shift, you are totally channeling Charlotte! I am so happy to hear you loved the movie. I was worried, I've heard such mixed reviews. I'm trying to hold out and see it in two weeks when I go back home for a visit with my mom. I hope I last!!


  11. Just found your blog – I looove pink and green! And am planning to see the movie with my girlfriends too…the ones I used to bud about with SATC style before family life! Cute sandals 🙂
