Happy Hour: Tartini

May 23 2008 - 4:00pm


What would the world of girlie drinks be like without Sex and the City [1]? Besides cosmopolitans [2] and flirtinis [3], the uber-popular television series also gave birth to the tartini. The tartini is a combination of the cosmo and the flirtini because it takes components from both cocktails.

While there are lots of different recipes out there, this is the one I like to use. If you don't want to open an entire bottle of champagne to top off two drinks, use a sparkling substitute like Juice Squeeze Mountain Raspberry [4]. It gives the drink a slight fizz without changing the flavor. For the recipe please .
