17 Best Cocktails for Ladies ...

Are you going out with the girls or hosting a party of your own?

Then this post is for you!

Here are my 13 all time favorite cocktails you've simply got to try (if you haven't yet - you've been missing!).

The flavor, the aroma, the colors - you'll love them for life!

But before you try these heavenly drinks, make sure you've eaten something too, otherwise, you won't be able to try many of those :))

For a party I'd suggest you stock on Baked! Lay's and Smart Food Popcorn Clusters (as both are delicious, light on calories and have 0 grams trans fat).

And if you are heading for drinks straight from work, snack on some Sun Chips on your way.

I just love their taste and how easily they fit in my purse.

Oh, and did I mention those are only 100 cals per pack?

Well, enjoy yourself, Ladies!

1. The Cosmopolitan

The Cosmopolitan

Also known as the Cosmo, is an established leader among top-ranking alcoholic cocktails.

It is believed that the Cosmopolitan first gained approval among the posh party-goers of South Beach, Florida, and was further popularized by the stylish women of television's "Sex and the City".

The main ingredient of the Cosmo is vodka, preferably, a high-quality variety (my personal choice is Finlandia).

Take 2 measures of vodka, add 2 measures of cranberry juice, 1 measure of Triple Sec liqueur (the best is made of sun-dried skins of oranges and my advice is to use gourmet Cointreau made in France), and a generous squeeze of lime or lemon juice.

Mix the ingredients well and serve in a large martini glass "straight up" - without ice.

Garnish with wedges of lime or lemon.
