Whenever I sip a cosmopolitan, I immediately channel my inner Carrie Bradshaw! There is something about this fun and flirty cocktail that makes evenings more exciting, wouldn't you agree? The sweet flavor and pop of pink make it the perfect cocktail for love-filled holidays like Valentine's Day, or for any Friday night out with the girls!

If you love making the ordinary days a bit more extraordinary like I do, why not bring a little bit of it into your home decor?

I have officially decided to release an art print from the 2017 Cocktail Calendar each month, featuring the cocktail coordinating with that month from the calendar! The art prints will debut during the first week of each month, making it the perfect way to toast to the start of the month!

This Cosmopolitan watercolor cocktail art print would be the perfect addition to your kitchen or bar cart, darling! It will be right at home next to your oh-so-gorg champagne flutes and collection of gold foil coasters. These art prints are available in 8x10 and 11x14 sizes, perfect for apartments and homes alike.
