It's always fun to take a classic cocktail and do a little molecular mixology on it. Here I've taken the basic ingredients of a Cosmopolitan and turned it into a spoonful of happy hour.
I used the reverse spherification technique on my regular Cosmopolitan recipe leaving out the lime and Cointreau (or Triple Sec) so I could use those in a little pool in the spoon to float the Cosmopolitan cocktail sphere in. Note the little mint leaf I added inside the sphere, not a standard Cosmo ingredient but I wanted something floating in the sphere.
These cocktail spheres are a perfect pairing with an amuse bouche, one bite, one sip to go with the bite. These are a fun way to give folks a little happy hour giggle and they won't get you drunk either! Well, not unless you have a dozen or so.
