Now there’s only one thing left: sit back and relax. This refreshing drink is great for a happy hour on its own, but McGlinn also offers a few serving suggestions if you want to pair it with food. “Because the Cosmo is technically an acid, it makes a great appetizer,” explains McGlinn. “Acides stimulate the appetite! I would drink one before dinner with appetizers like olives, charcuterie with white cheddar and goat cheese, shrimp cocktail, candied pecans or bread and olive oil.”
McGlinn recommends making individual drinks, but if you want to make it for a crowd, you can. “You can make these batches by multiplying the recipe, stirring the ingredients together in a pitcher, and refrigerating until ready to serve,” McGlinn says.
