A more mature take on the signature cocktail of Sex and the City fans, this modified cosmo is perfect for happy hours in the Hudson Valley.

Author Mary Giuliani writes, “I am the lady who was living in New York in her 20s during the whole Sex and the City cosmo phenomenon, so by the year 2010, I needed to find a new drink. I switched the vodka to tequila and WOW — a drink that could easily take me into my 40s.”

This is a batch drink recipe; serve it up in a drink dispenser and guests can help themselves.
