Happy Hour: Classic Cosmo

Happy Hour: Classic Cosmo

If you’ve got Valentine’s Day dinner plans, solidify your menu with a classic drink. A Cosmo is a sophisticated and dressed-up cocktail choice, and is sure to impress your date or pals. If you’re looking for a virgin variety, swap out the alcohol with seltzer for an equally as pretty-pink presentation!
