The problem with the Cosmo, in my estimation, is that it's association with Sex and the City marks it as a drink for women only. And that's a shame because I love a good martini.
So I set out to fix this injustice. This is definitely the wrong moment in history to take anything away from women, so I'll probably face some minor counter-protesting, but it must be done.
The concoction you see below is pure, unadulterated masculinity--poured into a martini glass. Behold:
Note the proper way to hold the glass. Casual, unafraid of touching the chilled portion of the glass and notice in particular that the pinky finger is NOT sticking out.
That liquid you see dropping into the glass in the second image? That's testosterone.
There you go lads, you've been liberated.
