Recipe: Sex and the City Cocktails

Drinks inspired by the steamy sequel.


Published:

The stiletto-wielding, man-crazed characters on Sex and the City could be credited with putting the pink Cosmo on the map (among other things). In honor of Sex and the City II, which lands in theatres May 27, try an updated, but equally fabulous drink, like this feminine, rose-hued margarita (made from hibiscus-infused Tequila) or a simple twist on a Champagne cocktail. Bonus: the agave nectar cuts calories. -Alexis Korman
