Martha Stewart Loves This Cosmopolitan Mix—and You Can Snag It Online
Enjoy shaken, not stirred—it's a good thing.
While Ina Garten may have been declared the culinary queen of quarantine (we still love you, Ina!), team EatingWell can not get enough of @marthastewart48's off-the-cuff recipe videos, Salt-N-Pepa-infused Instastories and poolside snaps. Fans are adoring them too, with one noting, "I'm so loving these authentic Martha Stewart in quarantine posts. Just saying."
One of her latest posts has us gearing up for happy hour already, after she shared the uber-easy, three-ingredient idea.
Martha is known to be such a big fan of Belvedere ($29.99 for a 750-milliliter bottle, drizly.com) that she somehow scored a "Flip the Switch" light-up bottle just in time for World Cocktail Day (May 13, ICYWW). For this fruity cocktail, she suggests mixing a shot of that Polish rye vodka with a serving of Stirring's Cosmopolitan Cocktail Mix (snag it on Amazon) in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake until mixed, then strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish with lime.
"Poolside would be perfect," another fan commented—and we couldn't agree more. And after crunching the numbers on the nutrition info, we learned that Martha's semi-homemade cosmo won't take up too much of your calorie quota per day if you decide to follow suit.
Per 3-ounce serving, the Stirring's mix (made with water, sugar, cranberry juice and lime juice) has 60 calories, 17 grams of carbs and 16 grams of sugar. Add a 1 ½-ounce pour of vodka, a handful of ice and a splash of lime to round out the easy cocktail recipe and your happy hour refresher will have right around 156 calories.
