Glamour Gal

This sassy and sweet cocktail embodies the spirit of Carrie Bradshaw.



2 ounces SKYY vodka

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

1/2 ounce simple syrup or 1 teaspoon sugar

Drop of crème de cassis



Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass rimmed with crème de cassis and sugar. Finish with a drop of crème de cassis on top.



Mix tip: The photo on skyy.com looked very red, but the crème de cassis I purchased was a bit browner. For a quick fix, add a few drops of red food coloring to the crème de cassis before adding it to the cocktail and rim.



Blonde Ambition

Samantha would be proud to toast her latest conquest with this cocktail.



2 ounces SKYY Infusions Pineapple

1 ounce fresh lime juice

3/4 ounce triple sec

3/4 ounce crème de cacao

Lime wedge



Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lime wedge.



Mix tip:
I made another round for myself without the crème de cacao, and it was more to my liking.



Park Avenue Princess

Charlotte will be sitting pretty while sipping this bubbly beauty.



1 1/2 ounces SKYY Infusions Grape

3 ounces 7Up

1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/4 ounce red wine



Squeeze and drop half a lemon into a cocktail shaker. Add SKYY Infusions Grape and 7Up with ice, and shake. Strain into a tall collins glass with fresh ice, and float red wine over top of drink.



Mix tip: I really didn't think I would like the grape-infused vodka mixed with red wine, but this drink was a refreshing change.



Red Over Heels

Just the right amount of spice makes this cocktail a perfect fit for Miranda.



2 ounces SKYY Infusions Ginger

1 ounce honey syrup

3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

Lemon peel



To make honey syrup, combine 1/2 ounce of water with 1/2 ounce of honey. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Lay lemon peel twirl across the rim of the glass with cocktail pick.



Mix tip: Is it wrong to lick the glass? If so, I'm totally busted. This drink is pure heaven. I wouldn't change a thing.
