Social Diva – a website dedicated to young women who thrive off their social calendar by attending the hottest events with some of the coolest people across the country – has sent out a “Sip and Be Seen” list of the newest cocktails to refresh the same ol’ Cosmo you’ve been sippin’ on since 1999. Diva-licious.
A Touch of the Exotic: Switch it up with the entirely Diva-worthy, Asian Pear Lychee Martini: Kai Asian Vodka, pear liqueur, lychee juice and a squeeze of fresh lime. Bat those eyelashes over this glam cocktail and just TRY to keep the men off of you.
Divas Night Out: Invite your fellow Divas over for pre-VIP with a batch of Woo Woos: fill half a cocktail shaker with ice, then squeeze in juice from a lime wedge and add 2 oz. vodka and 1/2 oz. peach schnapps. Shake and then strain into an old-fashioned glass half filled with ice. Add the squeezed lime wedge and top with a splash of cranberry juice. Drink it down and head out on the town – VIP style, of course.
Straight up, and Fabulous: Sometimes we want something strong and neat (just like we like our men), which is when we order Patron Citronge over ice. Southern Divas might like a touch of home with Bourbon neat. This is a perfect drink if you’re on a Steakhouse Stakeout or your own Summer Manhunt.
Wakeup Sans Hangover: If you need to wake up fresh as a daisy (or you just don’t drink, which is fine, too), it doesn’t mean you can’t sip something fabulous. Order our favorite Mocktail, the Grapefruit Lemonade: tell the bartender it’s a shot of Grenadine syrup with a splash of grapefruit juice topped with soda water. Get a straw so you can show off your cute neon manicure. Ah, we love it!
Beach Party Bound? Social Divas who want to watch calories can bring their own “Skinny” cocktail, Bethenny Frankel‘s Skinny Girl Margarita: combine 2 oz. of clear tequila (100 % agave, Patron Silver) with a splash of Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec and a splash of fresh lime juice in a glass with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and salt or sugar. Don’t forget to bring the bottle of tequila for shots later!
