Seeing as the name of this blog was inspired by Sex and the City, it’s only right that the drink I decided to jazz up this Christmas season was the infamous Cosmopolitan. The primary recipe for this was the Duke’s Cosmopolitan which I learned from watching Barefoot Contessa. I tried searching for the exact tutorial I watched on TV on YouTube, but I was unsuccessful, so keep reading to see what is different than the recipe she shared on her website.
The main difference between a traditional Cosmopolitan and a Duke’s Cosmopolitan is that it uses lemons instead of limes. A Cosmo uses triple sec or cointreau, but in her broadcast tutorial, she used orange liqueur which is what I opted to use as well. What you’ll need for this recipe is:
We’re back with a fall update! Technically, we’re only a few days shy of being in the winter season, but I am officially six months into my lease and, as promised, I wanted to give y’all an update.

I decided halfway through filming this week’s video, so that lets you know that I do not have pre-planned content. While I did have a few things on my calendar already that I knew would make this month’s videos more exciting, this is going to be a challenge for me to create content at a faster turnover rate. It’s not quite a vlogmas, but maybe a Christmas special! 🙂
I think we can all collectively agree that the last thing on our minds is a New Year’s Resolution. Although I’ve already caught glimpses of morning news broadcasts talking about losing quarantine weight, I like to think most of us are fully aware that COVID-19 doesn’t expire at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Though it is exciting to have almost-certainty that an effective vaccine is coming our way in 2021, I know I’ve learned my lesson about great expectations. I certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with goal-setting as I have been making vision boards for the past two years and may even do one next month; however, I don’t have to be the one to discuss the harmful effects of setting overly ambitious goals at the beginning of the year and falling into a pit of self-pity three weeks later.
