Bottom Shelf Mixology: Dingy Cosmopolitan

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

Dingy Cosmopolitan
  • 4 oz. Crystal Palace Vodka
  • 1 can of Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash
  • 1 piece orange jelly candy

A few hours before you have this drink, you need to open the can of Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash and let it sit on the counter.  You want it to be nice and flat.

After the drink is no longer carbonated, you are ready to mix your drink.  Grab the rest of your gallon of Crystal Palace, and get yourself four ounces.  Pour that into your glass.  Dump in the can of flat Sierra Mist.  Garnish the glass with the orange jelly candy.

This drink is best enjoyed during ABC's Thursday Night lineup.
