This CosMULLpolitan is MULLicious!

Happy Wednesday A Big To Do lovers! 
Today’s holiday beverage puts a mulled twist on the classic Cosmopolitan, in honor of Mrs. Erica Prewett (as the Cosmopolitan is her favorite cocktail). This deliciously chic mix will warm up even the chilliest of parties. The mulling gives this cocktail a wonderful organic flavor that fits perfectly into the evergreen and holiday spice season.   
First thing you will need to do is create mulled cranberry juice (no worries, it’s a snap). Warm 1 liter of cranberry juice with 5 drops grapefruit bitters**, 3 cinnamon sticks, 2 cloves and 4 orange twists (the peel of one regular sized orange cut into fourths). Let this simmer until fragrant, your home is going to smell delectable! Now let the mix cool and refrigerate (will keep for around 3 days).

Now on to the big show! To make the mulled Cosmo, shake 2 ounces orange or citrus vodka, 1 ounce mulled cranberry juice, ½ ounce lemon juice and a dash of triple sec. Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a clove studded orange slice (just mash a few cloves into an orange slice… those of you not from the south “mash” simply means press).

Cheers y'all!
