The Wiscosmopolitan - July 22, 2010

The Wiscosmopolitan

Happy Birthday to Jaime! Continuing in the Dinner Club tradition, Nick and I concocted a birthday cocktail in your honor. Using the cosmopolitan as our starting point, we played with the recipe by adding some Mid-western details to create this tasty version to celebrate Jaime.

Recipe (makes 1 cocktail)

1/4 cup rhubarb infused vodka
2 Tbsp Cointreau
2 Tbsp cranberry juice
1-2 freshly picked strawberries

Muddle the strawberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker (add a bit of sugar if they aren't a super sweet freshly picked variety). Add rhubarb infused vodka, Cointreau, and cranberry juice to the shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass.

For this drink, the rhubarb, and strawberries were both grown in Wisconsin. Most likely the cranberries were too! The sweet-tart flavors are great, with the rhubarb playing off the strawberries nicely. Jaime is now living in a cosmopolitan city, but her heart is still pure Wisconsin. Jaime, a toast to you on your special day! We wish we could drink it with you, but we'll settle for drinking it thinking of you. Have a wonderful birthday!
