Summer Cocktails: Triple Berry Cosmo-Rita with 3Daughters Key Lime Cider 

When challenged with creating a cocktail using Wish Farms berries, I knew that I needed to stay true to my roots and true to my palate.  I knew that I needed a simple drink that was easy to prepare, but one that could wow a crowd.  My solution…create a hybrid–marry together two famous cocktails in an interesting way that would produce a whole new drink.

Most people, who read “Cosmo-Rita,” immediately think tequila and vodka, and yes, that would make sense, but that’s way too much alcohol, even for me.  Instead, I went a slightly different route and combined the tequila of a traditional margarita, with the sweet effervescence of a 3 Daughters Key Lime Cider and the style of a cosmopolitan to create this fancy, schmancy cocktail that pairs as well with a hamburger as it does a New York strip.
