Leave it to Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa, to get us through quarantine. The cooking maven just posted this cocktail recipe video to Facebook, and we are losing it — because YES to everything about it.
In it, Garten walks you through her favorite tradition: the cocktail hour. Her cosmopolitan recipe calls for a big pitcher: "You never know who's going to stop by ... wait a minute, nobody's stopping by." Then, combine two cups vodka ("good vodka," which, btw looks like WAY more than two cups), one cup Cointreau, one cup cranberry juice, and a half cup freshly squeezed lime juice. Then shake for 30 seconds ("you have lots of time, it's not a problem").
Finally, you need a good martini glass. Just wait until you see it. LOLOLOLOLOL.
BTW, if you're searching for a giant martini glass, look no further:
