Cosmopolitan Cocktail and this blog’s 5 Year Anniversary

Cosmo (7915)Just for curiosity’s sake I decided to go through C&T‘s archive and verify the date of my first post. I smiled when I did because coincidentally it was the 6th of January, 2011. I can’t believe I have been doing this for five years. What started as a hobby is now what I love to do best. It all started from simply posting my bakes of the week on Facebook to having a nameless and structureless little blog, to what Chorizo & Thyme has become today. I thank everyone for being here with me, reading my thoughts and recipes, and commenting. Reading your comments and your messages is so uplifting.

So to celebrate I’d thought I share this photo with a ‘recipe’ for a Cosmopolitan. Do you call something like this a recipe? I have no idea. This shot is certainly a throwback to the days where we had no Martini glasses. But we were never evangelical about these things. Cocktail lovers would turn their noses at the idea of a Cosmo in a wine glass. We didn’t mind. We now have the proper glasses and use them accordingly. Just to set things straight.

The festive season has come and gone, but here’s to you, to friends, to family and to this year! And remember to drink responsibly.

  • 45ml vodka
  • 22ml Cointreau
  • splash or two of cranberry juice
  • splash of lime juice

Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a glass and garnish with a lime wedge if you want.


Browse through C&T to see what I was up to during these past five years:

One year ago: The Easiest Chocolate Brownies

Two years ago: Images – Pastry and Cookie Cutters

Three years ago: Pan-fried Pork

Four years ago: Post-Christmas Parsnip Soup

Five years ago: Bread (my very first post! C&T has grown so much since then!)
