Carrie: “But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you, you love, well, that's just fabulous.”
On a side note, didn't Sarah Jessica Parker look absolutely stunning at the NYC Premiere of Sex and the City 2? I thought so and her dress was so vibrant.
And another note, my best friend, Anu, got me this silly martini glass which reads, "Be Naughty." I guess it is appropriate for this post. 🙂
And now I bring you the official drink of Sex and the City, the Cosmopolitan, in form of a smoothie, hence coSMOOTHIEpolitan... I can say I invented this. I substituted freshly squeezed orange juice for Cointreau liquor and added strawberries to obtain a smoothie like texture. In addition, I wasn't able to find cranberries which is the main ingredient, so I selected a cranberry juice without high fructose corn syrup... got it at Wegmans.
NUTRITION: In one word, ANTIOXIDANTS!!! Cranberry Juice, Oranges, Strawberries and Limes are an excellent source of Vitamin C.
Oranges are a very good source of Fiber and a good source of Folic Acid, Vitamin B1, Vitamin A and Calcium.
Strawberries are a very good source of Fiber and a good source of Folic Acid, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin K.
- Cranberry Juice - ½ cup
- Oranges - Juice of 2 should yield ½ cup

This looks so good!! Your other smoothie posting looked great as well!! Your postings have convinced me to get a blender or a Magic Bullet......so much cheaper to make these smoothies at home rather than pay $5 for one!
Thanks. The Magic Bullet is awesome... I do so much with it. You can get it for $50, so much cheaper than a blender. THe smoothies are such a rip off outside 🙂 And you can make your smoothies with the real thing, rather than sugar syrups.
Awh!! Love your story about why SATC is such a big part of your life! Anyways, the smoothie looks yummy!! We're going to have to have a girls night the next time im in town with these smoothies, brownies and of course the movie! -Anu
Oh my gosh, when I come over Saturday for our fun and fabulous SATC2 night out in NYC you have to make that amazing looking cosmo smoothie. It looks much better than the regular cosmos. I'm sooo looking forward to our SATC2 night out.
Thank you Anu and Jhiane. Your comments are lovely! Anu, there is no party, we'll have a SATC party when you are in town next.
Jhiane, if time permits, sure I'll blend you a smoothie, however this is an alcohol-free beverage. Please take note. 🙂
YUM! Love this recipe 🙂 I saw the movie last night and kinda wish I had this drink to sip on 😉
Thanks Mary. I hope the movie is good, the reviews don't look that promising!
