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).3

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.

2. Margarita

The sharp and delicious, Margarita is the best known tequila-based cocktail.2

To make it, you will need good tequila (I recommend Añejo, which is an aged variety with a rich and distinctive taste), Triple Sec liqueur (always keep some of it in your cocktail drawer alongside with wines, vodkas, flavoured liquors, chocolate, and other yummy goodies to indulge in during long autumn nights), and fresh limes or lemons (limes go better).

A good rule of thumb is to mix 7 parts of tequila with 4 parts of Triple Sec and add at least 3 parts of lime juice.2

Enjoy your Margarita in a large cocktail glass with a salt rim around the edge, either blended with ice (a "frozen Margarita"), on the rocks, or just with some ice cubes added.
