Cocktail Couture

Cosmopolitans are so last season. Literally. The pink drink — a mix of vodka, Triple Sec, and cranberry juice — was made famous by the hit HBO series in the late '90s, when Carrie Bradshaw ordered hers at every bar in New York. But now, each girl has her own signature concoction, courtesy of SKYY Vodka. Grab a martini glass and your best girlfriends, and drink up!
