Cosmopolitan Shadow

Cosmopolitan 03
A Cosmopolitan (vodka, unsweetened cranberry juice, fresh lime juice, triple sec) in bright late afternoon sun.

Shadow Shot Sunday is FDA-approved, and it's the latest dance craze.

Update: for more shadows this week, check out these photos of my friend Allison's art show. Posted them yesterday, and it didn't even occur to me how appropriate they would be for SSS...

Yumm, such beautiful Autumn colors, just wish I could imbibe without repercussions(hot flashes)(and falling down)...

I see two drinks here, the original 1930s cocktail, while the shadow has the look of a 1980s cocktail made with Bailey's, or Kaluha. For me, I prefer the art-deco styled ruby one!

Wow! what a delicious shot to start the day, Tom -- it's a little early here for the real thing, so this is perfect! Love the colors!

Enjoy your weekend!

I wonder if you can make that last until Martini Monday...

Just the thing to have on a quiet night home, with the rain falling outside - as it has been for most of the week here. Now where did I put my cocktail shaker?

Martha Z said...

I'll drink to that, or maybe I should drink that.
