the do’s and do-not’s of turning 21

Do not start drinking at 1 p.m. on a weekday.

Do not sober up and then start drinking again. You will be tired and have a headache, and then you will become tipsy again.

Do not double-fist free drinks. It is likely that you will spill a little bit of your Mexican martini, and a waitress might giggle at you.

Do celebrate with this pomegranate cosmopolitan.

Do drink it out of a sprinkle-rimmed martini glass.

Pomegranate Cosmopolitan. Yields 1.

1 1/2 oz. vodka
1 oz. pomegranate juice
Juice from half a lime
Ice
1 oz. club soda

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a shaker and shake. Run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass and dip it in sprinkles or sugar. Pour the cosmo into the glass, straining out the ice. Top it off with the club soda. And as always, do find a designated driver when you drink. :)

    That martini looks amazing, I love the sprinkles idea! Unfortunatly, a lot of your ‘dont’s’ happened on my 21st birthday. : / But I made it out alive, lol. (Barely, though.)
