Hello, lovers! Are you Manolo-wearin' fabulous femmes seeking an elixir to calm you before Sex and the City 2 comes out on the 28th? Head to The Palm or The Melting Pot throughout the month of May and insist on a couture cocktail, like this Glamour Gal.
2 oz. vodka (SKYY recommended, mostly because of the signature Patricia Field bottle!)
.5 oz. fresh lemon juice
.5 oz. fresh lime juice
.5 oz. simple syrup or 1 tsp. sugar
Drop of crème de cassis
Directions: Rim a crystallized Swarovski martini glass
(is there any other kind?) with crème de cassis and sugar.* Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into the martini glass. Finish the cocktail with a drop of crème de cassis on top.
*To rim the martini glass, first dip rim of glass in a shallow dish filled with crème de cassis and immediately place rim in another shallow dish with sugar, rotating the glass to ensure the whole rim is covered.
