For our annual Thanksgiving-time girls' night in, Heather suggested the drink, my mother and Aunt Sallie procured the ingredients, and we all sat around and enjoyed one of the best Chinese takeout dinners I have ever had. Certainly the cocktails added to that enjoyment, but I will be perfectly honest and cheesy by saying that the real enjoyment was the intergenerational love and conversation accompanied by many, many laughs. (We missed you, Nina!)
Next time you have the chance to surround yourself with many women you love, try these.

2 cups (16 oz) good vodka
1 cup (8 oz) orange liqueur (we used your average triple sec)
1 cup (8 oz) pomegranate juice (we used POM)
1/2 cup (4 oz) freshly squeezed lime juice
Pour all ingredients into a pitcher and give it a ceremonial stir. Refrigerate until ready to consume. A classic cosmo would be served in a chilled martini glass, but we enjoyed this on the rocks with a splash of seltzer added.
