Make Your Own Non-Virtual Cocktail for We're Still Here: A Virtual Cabaret
Here's what you need to know:
Last week Courtenay Collins kicked off WE'RE STILL HERE: A VIRTUAL CABARET and it was top-five coziest moments of this weird social distancing time. If you missed it, don't fret. Terry Burrell and Courtenay switch off every other week, which means Terry hosts this week's cabaret live from her living room. (RSVP here.) They sing songs, tell stories, and drink cocktails. You just can't beat that.
And lucky for you, they've each shared their cocktail recipe of choice and we're going to share them with you here. Bottoms up!
Courtenay Collins's QUARANTORANGEY
7 oz. orange-flavored vodka
7 oz. cranberry juice cocktail

4 oz. fresh lime juice
Mix all ingredients in a chilled martini shaker
Add ice and shake for at least 30 seconds
(or until you feel you have gotten a really good upper arm workout)
Strain into festive martini glass
Share or drink it all by yourself!
