Shaking Up The Cosmo

Ever since "Sex and the City" made Cosmo all the rage, mixologists have been vying to create the newest, hippest, most ingenious twist on the drink.

They may have finally found the answer. It's called the "Constant Comment" Cosmo and it's quickly becoming the toast of trendy bars, holiday parties and more. The cocktail is made with Bigelow® "Constant Comment" tea, sugar, orange juice and vodka.

"This cosmopolitan is the perfect blend of spice, sweet and fun," says Cindi Bigelow, a third-generation Bigelow family member and the company's co-president.

The TV show is now in reruns, and this drink could stick around forever, too. Here's the recipe:

"Constant Comment"



6 Bigelow® "Constant Comment" tea bags

11/4 cups (310mL) boiling water

1/3 cinnamon stick

2 tablespoons (30mL) sugar

4 ounces (120mL) vodka

1/4 cup (60mL) fresh orange juice


Place Bigelow® "Constant Comment" tea bags into a measuring cup and add 11/4 cups boiling water and cinnamon stick, let brew five minutes. Remove tea bags and cinnamon stick, add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Chill.

To make Cosmo, mix 2 ounces of the cooled sweet tea with 1 ounce vodka and 1 tablespoon orange juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass, garnish with a strip of orange zest and cinnamon stick if desired.

Yield: Serves 4.
