Ina Gartenis showing folks stuck at home how to “keep traditions alive” – especially “cocktail hour.” The Food Network star has taken to Instagram off her go-to recipe for a cosmo – a giant one.
In the video, the "Barefoot Contessa" star starts off by pouring what she calls “two cups” of “good vodka” into a pitcher (it's clearly MUCH more), then “one cup” of Cointreau/orange liqueur (yup - she pours a lot of that, too) and half cup of freshly squeezed lime juice (looks more like two cups), and one cup of cranberry juice cocktail (getting the idea..she pours A LOT). Then, the best part… she shakes up the mixture and whips out a giant martini glass that requires two hands (it's almost as big as her head).
“You know, a cocktail hour can be almost any hour,” she points out in the clip, which was posted about 9:30am ET yesterday. She's a hero.
