#1 It was my sister's birthday.
#2 It was NYC.
#3 It was girls only. (no kids...yay!)
We had an amazing time! Shopping, eating, Broadway, and drinking!
This was our favorite drink of the weekend....
We went to Employees Only in New York City where Jason Kosmas (partner and principal bartender) created this yummy cocktail!
West Side Cocktail
From Bar Chef Jason Kosmas of Employees Only- New York, NY
Yield: 1 Serving
- 1 1/2 ounces citrus vodka
- 1 1/2 ounces fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 ounce simple syrup
- 2 fresh mint sprigs
- Splash of club soda
Pour vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup into a mixing glass. Add mint and ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Top off with club soda.
It's kind of like a mojito, but a little sweeter. YUM!
