We're having a
Sex and the City moment this week babes!
Which means lots of cosmos! And girl talk. Were you Team Big or Team Aidan back in the day? I know it's been a million years but I'm still crushed by the second break-up with Aidan. 😭
If you need me, I'll just be over here drowning my sorrows in this DELICIOUS cosmo from Joia Spirits.
When I started on my journey of trying *all* the pre-made cocktails, I did a little internet sleuthing and found a tip that I've been keeping in mind as I shop for cocktails to try. The tip was look for drinks with "real" ingredients on the label which is what made this ready-to-drink cocktail jump out at me at the grocery store. And as always - cute packaging.
Real vodka - perfect! All natural with nothing artificial - cool. Cranberry, pear and lime - Sign. Me. Up.
And poof! The real ingredient tip paid off in spades this time. This "craft cocktail" is freaking delish ladies. Take yourself to the store right now and stock up for the weekend. What better way to enjoy the first weekend of summer than with a sparkling cosmo a la Carrie and the girls.
Here is official my score for the Joia Spirit Sparkling Cosmopolitan:
Perfection! This pre-made cocktail is so good. I was a little concerned after trying the Cayman Jack margaritas that nothing else would ever be 5-cocktail shakers good but this cosmo proved me wrong and I'm not complaining one bit.
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
This cocktail has just the right about of sweetness for a cosmo. It is like drinking a light fruit juice - but with booze! An adult juice box if you will.
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 7% ABV. It has a little zip to it that hits you right away which I love! I'm all about getting to the perfect fuzz quickly. (What the heck is a fuzz? Check out my description here.)
Would I buy this again?
For sure! And I'd pick up it's two sister flavors, Greyhound and Moscow Mule, in a heart beat. I am willing to bet all of the craft cocktails from Joia are outstanding.
Have you tried this drink? What did you think? I'd love to hear from you in the comments section. The more opinions the better! Let's "drink together" and share our cocktail stories.
