A Cosmopolitan in name but not in style. Instead, this Cosmo is perhaps best described as a delicately spiced Old Fashioned. If serving straight-up, as perhaps originally intended, then, depending on your ice, consider adding a splash of chilled water prior to stirring.
This, the first "Cosmopolitan" cocktail in print, appears in the "Cocktails Round Town" chapter by Arthur Moss in Harry McElhone's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails.
Casting a glance at the meal-ticket, O. O. McIntyre concocts the "Cosmopolitan:" 1/6 Italian vermouth, 1/6 French vermouth, 1/6 Swedish punch, 1/6 Scotch whisky, 1/6 Irish whisky, 1/6 Russian vodka. And then the case containing the corpse is submitted to the League of Nations.Arthur Moss, 1927
